De Ligt: ‘I will decide whether I will extend with Juve’

Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt revealed he is in talks with the club over a contract extension and that he will decide when the time comes. The 22-year-old has a contract with the Bianconeri until 2024 and is currently in talks with the club over a new deal.

Speaking to NOS, De Ligt clarified his immediate future and explained why personally speaking, this was his best season at the club:

Talks are being held and, when the time comes, I will decide whether I will extend or whether I want to look elsewhere.

I always look at what is best for myself in terms of sporting project. Fourth place, two years in a row, is not good enough. We will have to make steps in that direction.

Personally, this was my best year so far. In terms of playing time and the way I played.

The club have said that to me and I have shown this season, when Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci were injured, what I am capable of. I had to take the lead and it went well. I think that’s the next step.”
