According to Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato via Goal, Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.

The report claims De Ligt’s agent, Mino Raiola, has spoken to officials from Manchester City and Chelsea about signing the Juventus centre-back next summer.

Both English clubs are interested in bringing the Juventus defender to the Premier League, with Raiola eager to broke a move as he continues to struggle for regular minutes at the Allianz Stadium.

However, Juve won’t let De Ligt leave the club for less than the €150 million (£127m/$174m) release clause in his current contract.
