German club Bayern Munich stands as major competitor to Barcelona for the signature of 19 year old star matthijis Delight
With Juventus allegedly bowing out of the race for Ajax’s 19-year-old center back phenom Matthijs de Ligt, it looks as if Bayern Munich has stepped in to be FC Barcelona’s huckleberry in this transfer showdown.
Earlier on Juve lead the race for Signing of the Ajax player, but there seems to be a change of plan as the Italians have different priorities. They like De light but the clubs fee will be bigger than expected and their money may be better invested elsewhere. They want a center back but the high price of the Dutch international is a problem at the moment.
That’s not the case for Bayern Munich. Barça are aware the German side have shown their interest in the player to Ajax and their desire to sign him in the summer. It’s not the first time Barça and Bayern’s interests have crossed. For example, both clubs are also keen on Lille forward Nicolas Pepe.
