Chelsea are pushing to sign Matthijs de Ligt and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Blues have raised their offer for Juventus.
According to the report, Chelsea have offered €80m to sign the Netherlands international who has a €120m release clause included in his contract.
Chelsea saw a €40m bid rejected last week. Timo Werner or Christian Pulisic could have been included in the deal, but the Bianconeri rejected the Blues’ first offer.
Now, according to Gazzetta, the Old Lady has a new proposal on the table, while Il Corriere della Sera provides a different version of the transfer saga, claiming that Chelsea will soon make a new €70m bid.
The paper reports that Juventus want at least €80m, while Gazzetta claims the Bianconeri’s asking price is €90m.
De Ligt wants to leave Juventus in the summer, as confirmed by the club’s CEO Maurizio Arrivabene earlier this week.
The former Ajax captain joined the Serie A giants in an €85.5m deal in 2019.
