Report: Juventus reportedly reinvest De Ligt money in two transfer targets

Following the departure of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich to Barcelona, ​​the Bavarians will have fresh funds in their coffers which would allow them to forge an improved offer for Matthijs de Ligt.

Juventus have already rejected the Germans’ first approach which was around €60m plus bonuses as they expect a figure closer to 100m.

According sportmediaset journalist Daniele Miceli (via TuttoJuve), the Bianconeri would reinvest the money received from the sale of the Dutchman on two transfer targets.

Naturally, the former would be a similar replacement for the starting defender, and Pau Torres would be the preferred option.

While Villarreal are asking for €50m to part ways with the centre-back, the Italians are only willing to pay between €30m and €35m for his services.

Nevertheless, the source claims the Spaniard wouldn’t cost much in terms of salary compared to other targets.

The 25-year-old is a young product of the Yellow Submarines who has now secured a regular place in the Spanish national team.

On the other hand, the rest of the money from de Ligt’s sale would be spent on Nicolò Zaniolo, at least according to the report.

The 23-year-old Italian is one of the Old Lady’s main targets this summer, but this pursuit is turning into a complicated transfer saga.
