Over the past few months, there have been repeated rumours and speculation about Matthijs de Ligt’s sporting future at FC Bayern. The defender has been heavily linked with an early departure in the summer. The Dutchman has now spoken out about his future and emphasised that he has no intention of moving.

During the winter, reports surfaced that Matthijs de Ligt was not happy with his situation at FC Bayern under Thomas Tuchel. The 24-year-old lost his starting place and had to settle for a reserve role.

Rumours quickly spread that the defender could leave the record champions in the summer. There was already a concrete interest from Manchester United. Just a few weeks later, the tide has turned completely. Together with Eric Dier, De Ligt has established himself in the centre of Munich’s defence and consistently delivers strong performances.

„I am very happy at FC Bayern“

According to de Ligt, a premature departure from FCB is not an issue for him at all: „No! I’m very happy at FC Bayern. The club and the fans have always given me a lot of love. I feel good now. I’m very happy now and hopefully we can still play very good games this season and go very far in the Champions League,“ he explained in an interview with Sky on the sidelines of the international match between Germany and the Netherlands.

De Ligt also emphasised that the atmosphere in the Bayern dressing room is not as bad as it often seems. Even players who play less behave absolutely correctly: „You can see it now with Upamecano and Kim: they haven’t said anything, but everywhere it’s written that some clubs want these players. That’s often the problem and doesn’t correspond to reality.“


  1. Warum sollte er auch wechseln? weil es die Medien immer wieder schreiben.
    Man sollte nicht immer meinen wenn ein Spieler nicht immer von Anfang an spielt möchte er gleich den Verein verlassen .
    Es gibt in einem großen Verein immer wieder Situationen wo man sich durchsetzen muss, dadurch wird man ein ganz großer, und ich bin überzeugt das schafft er und wird eine riesen Stütze beim F.C. Bayern werden

  2. de ligt 100% mia san mia echter Leader. de ligt und Eric Dier biiiittte mit langfristigen Verträgen ausstatten . Bitte liebe Leute im Vorstsnd fangt mal das Denken sn
