German Bundesliga Giants Bayern Munich are reportedly keen in making Ajax duo of Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong key figures in their summer squad overhaul following the impending exit of some key players.
Changes are coming for Bayern Munich, who are reportedly ready to spend at least €200 million next summer to refresh their veteran squad. Club president Uli Hoeness has even made clear on multiple occasions that the club will undergo some big changes over the course of the next year.
Several young stars have emerged as supposed transfer targets for the Bavarians. Attacking talents like Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Luka Jovic have all been linked with a move to Bayern.
Additionally, there have also been a few defensive names mentioned as potential targets for the reigning German champions. Among those is 19-year-old Ajax captain Mattijs de Ligt. The Dutchman is already one of the best central defenders, so it’s no surprise to see him mentioned as a potential target for the Bavarians.
A recent report from Sport Bild as quoted in Bayern Strikes and obtained by bayernstrikes.com claims De Ligt is a serious contender for a Bayern move, but he’s not the only Ajax player who could come to Munich. The report also suggests that the Bavarians want to sign his teammate and fellow Dutchman Frenkie de Jong as well. It even goes so far as to claim Bayern would be willing to spend up to €150 million on the pair.
Apparently, the two players are reportedly keen on joining the same club, no matter where that may be. A package deal may be the only way to convince them to leave Ajax.
