Bayern Munich are now set to make their second, improved offer to sign Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt.
Bayern’s Hasan Salihamidzic was in Turin some days ago to potentially agree a fee with Juventus for De Ligt. But while initial attempts failed, Bayern haven’t given up on the player.
Daniele Longo has reported that in the recent meeting between the two clubs, Juve informed Bayern that they intend to sell the Dutchman for a fee of €90 million and that should include all the bonuses and packages. Bayern initially offered €60 million plus €10 million but they are now ready to make another offer for the player.
De Ligt has already agreed personal terms with Bayern and he is ready to fly to Germany once the move is agreed between the two clubs.
While Bayern’s next offer will come close to matching Juve’s valuation of the defender but to sign the player, they first have to sell Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona.
They rejected Barcelona’s initial €40 million plus €5 million bonuses bid and now, Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race for the striker and they are ready to invest €50 million in the player.
