With Matthijs de Ligt, it looks like FC Bayern has found a new central player in defence. While the Munich side have already agreed to a summer changeover with the 22-year-old, a tough transfer deal with Juventus Turin is imminent. According to current media reports, Bayern already have a backup plan ready in case De Ligt’s transfer fails.
According to reports, Juventus are asking €80-100m for De Ligt. Whether or not Bayern are willing to spend a lot of money on the Dutchman is open. According to “Sky”, the pain threshold (current) is 60 million euros. If you have to break up with a guy in the summer, you’ll have a little more room.
The problem: With Chelsea, another big club is flirting with De Ligt. The Blues are desperately looking for a new, more financially strong central defender from the Munich team.
Does Bayern grab another French player?
According to Spanish “Sport” reportsBayern leaders already have a plan B ready if you go empty-handed at De Ligt. According to this, Jules Kounde of FC Sevilla is also a candidate in Säbener Straße.
The 23-year-old would like to leave Sevilla in the summer. According to “Sport”, the Andalusian is ready to talk for 60-65 million euros. Curiously enough, Chelsea is also interested in Conde. Thus, the “loser” in poker de Ligt can come to Kounde.
After Dayot Uppicano, Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard and Tanguy Nyanzo, Conde will be the fifth French defender at Bayern Munich.
