Matthijs de Ligt is uncertain about his future in Juventus. The Dutch player has demanded on-field improvement from the club, saying their current levels are “not enough”. His contract will run until 2024. 

The transfer opening can lead him to a new path or he would either stay. 

As per Goal, In an interview with NOS,  De Ligt said that they are still in discussion about his contract extension. However, he is very open to looking at other sporting projects.

“Negotiations are ongoing at the moment and when the time comes, I will decide whether to extend or look elsewhere. I always look at what is best for me in terms of the sporting project,” he said.

His unimpressive performances on the pitch made him realize that he can do more Or perhaps challenge himself to other clubs. 

“Two consecutive fourth-place finishes are not enough, we have to make progress in that direction because these are disappointing results. Juventus are a club that always wants and must become champions,” he further stated.
