Chelsea wants, at all costs, the Dutch defender

The future of de Ligt looks increasingly far from Turin. In an interview with Tuttosport, Arrivabene, Juventus’ chief executive, was clear about the Dutchman’s future: “Impossible to hold back those who want to leave, but from the negotiating table we have to get up satisfied in three,” the words of the Old Lady’s executive.

In short, retaining the former Ajax man seems definitely complicated but, to let him go, certain conditions are needed. Juventus seems determined not to go down from the set price, which is 120 million euros (rescissory clause). Chelsea is warned: to get the Dutchman class of 1999 will require a big financial effort.
