De Ligt joins Bayern Munich in €77m deal

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt has completed a permanent transfer to Bayern Munich. The Dutchman brings the curtain down on his three-year stint in Italy to join Julian Nagelsmann’s ranks at Allianz Arena, and will now integrate with the squad ahead of their 2022-23 season opener next month.

Bayern have brought in one of the most highly-rated centre-backs in Europe after finalising a deal with Juve, where he became a Serie A and Coppa Italia winner.

Bayern have paid an initial fee of €67 million (£57m/$69m) for De Ligt, with the deal set to be worth an extra €10m (£8.5m/$10m) in add-ons if certain performance and commercial-related clauses are met.

De Ligt has put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Bayern, which will see him remain at Allianz Arena through to the end of the 2026-27 season.

De Ligt has become Bayern’s fourth summer transfer window signing, with Sadio Mane, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui having also been snapped up on permanent deals.

The Bundesliga giants have, though, seen top scorer Robert Lewandowski depart for Barcelona, and it has been suggested that they will seek a replacement before the market slams shut.
