According to Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel wants Matthijs de Ligt, while Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also interested in the Juventus central defender.
Tuchel wants to sign De Ligt, according to the Italian daily, and the new Chelsea owners are willing to grant his desire and sign the Juventus defender.
Liverpool, PSG, and Barcelona are three of the most popular clubs in the world. Manchester United is also said to be interested in the 22-year-old Netherlands international centre-back, who earns £200,000 a week (SalarySport).
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to pair the teenager with his Netherlands international teammate Virgil van Dijk at club level, according to the article.
Matthijs de Ligt, in our opinion, would prefer a move to Chelsea over a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
Quality players include Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.
Chelsea, on the other hand, requires centre-backs.
Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are no longer with the team, while Thiago Silva is 37 years old.
De Ligt would be a natural fit for Chelsea’s starting lineup and may be a long-term fixture for the Blues.
