Still no agreement between the player and management after the meeting on Thursday: the positions remain distant
De Ligt moves away from Juve. The meeting, which took place on Thursday in Milan, between the Juventus management and the lawyer ended with a black smoke Rafaela Pimenta (the same in which Paul Pogba was spoken of), who looks after the interests of the Dutch defender. No agreement on the renewal of the contract, expiring in 2024, on the release clause of 120 million euros, which the player’s entourage aims to lower to 70-80 million to have more opportunities on the market, on the salary of 8 million plus bonuses that raise it to 12 a year: no intention of spreading it in the club’s perspective of cost containment. Premier clubs at the window: Chelsea over all.
“I have always made decisions based on the sporting project and two consecutive fourth places are not enough. We need to take a step forward, they are disappointing results”, De Ligt had recently told the Dutch of NOS since the retirement of his national team, sending out a clear message to Juve: the ambitions are other. The will of the Juventus club is to lock down the player – considered by Allegri one of the leaders of the team of the future – but the road is all uphill. And in this scenario the threat of the Chelseabut also of the City by Guardiola. No offer at the moment but the situation is evolving.
