CHELSEA have reportedly been given a major boost to their hopes of signing Bayern Munich star Matthijs de Ligt.

The 24-year-old defender has faced an uncertain future at Bayern Munich for a while now after falling out of favour under Thomas Tuchel.

According to Sky Sports Germany, De Ligt is ‘likely to leave’ the Bundesliga champions in the summer if a ‘suitable offer’ is submitted. The Netherlands international, who sees his contract at the Allianz Arena expire in 2027, joined Bayern from Juventus for €67million (£57.6m) in July 2022.

The report adds that the Man United are monitoring De Ligt’s situation closely, with Erik ten Hag short on world-class options at the back.

The Dutchman, who was once regarded as one of the world’s most exciting young players, has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as a possible replacement for the departing Thiago Silva, who is expected to leave at the end of the season

There will be so much transfer speculation regarding the club over the next few weeks, and there will be so many players linked with a move to London.

But De Ligt is a brilliant defender, he is real leader on the pitch and for the right money, he would be a fantastic addition to that defence, which has lacked a bit of power this season.

Mauricio Pochettino  will surely get the backing of the board and it will be interesting to see just who he signs by January the 31st as this Blues side need to add some experienced players to the side.
