Juventus knock back approaches from Chelsea and Barcelona for defender Matthijs de Ligt, according to a report.

Juventus have reportedly rebuffed attempts from Chelsea and Barcelona to prise Matthijs de Ligt away from the Allianz Stadium this summer.

Having relinquished their stronghold on the Serie A crown and with a spot in the Champions League still not secured, Juve coach Andrea Pirlo is thought to be planning a major summer clearout.

De Ligt struggled with injuries at the start of the campaign, but he has since become an integral player for the Old Lady, playing the full 90 minutes in their last nine top-flight matches.

According to Tuttosport, De Ligt is one of a core group of players who Juve deem unsellable, and the Turin giants have rejected advances from Chelsea and Barcelona for the 21-year-old.

The report adds that Juve may be willing to let De Ligt go for the right price, but they would be expected to demand a higher sum than the initial £67.8m they paid for him in 2019.

The former Ajax man has a contract at Juventus until 2024, and he has scored five goals in 70 appearances for the Old Lady so far.
