‘Make It Happen!’ ‘We’re Not Dropping 80M+ On Another CB’ Fans Discuss Reports That City Could Challenge Chelsea For Dutch Star

Juventus believe Manchester City will enter the running to sign Matthijs de Ligt this summer, according to reports in the Italian media.

The Dutchman has been heavily linked with Chelsea over the past week, while the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool are also said to be interested in the defender.

De Ligt is reportedly keen to leave Juve but the Serie A club may demand a fee in excess of €100m (£86m) for the centre-back and supporters on Twitter are split on whether the player is worth the outlay:


A lot depends on what happens with Nathan Ake. A host of teams, including Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham and Newcastle are said to be interested in de Ligt’s international teammate.

However, it is believed that City may demand in excess of £50m for Ake. If their asking price is met, though, it could finance a sizeable portion of any bid for de Ligt. We shall see how this situation unfolds.
