Bayern Munich will pay an initial fee of £59.5 million (€70 million) plus a further £8.5 million (€10 million) in add-ons for Matthijs de Ligt, who is expected to sign a five-year contract until the summer of 2027; De Ligt is expected to complete his medical in Munich on Monday.
The 22-year-old Dutch international is expected to sign a five-year contract extension through the summer of 2027.
De Ligt is expected to complete his medical in Munich on Monday and sign the contract. The defender should then board the team’s flight to the United States, which is also scheduled for Monday.
The departure of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona has helped Bayern finance the signing of De Ligt, and the club’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, was recently in Turin to begin talks with Juventus.
Chelsea has been interested in De Ligt this summer as they look to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, both of whom left on free transfers. They recently reached an agreement with Kalidou Koulibaly.
De Ligt has spent the last three seasons with Juventus after joining from Ajax, where he has won one Serie A title and one Coppa Italia.
