Bayern Munich have signed defender Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus for $68.55 million.

"I'm very happy to become a player for this great club," he told the club's website. "FC Bayern are the most successful club in Germany, one of the most successful clubs in Europe and in the world.

"I felt the genuine appreciation from the sporting management, the coach and the board right from the start, which convinced me. On top of that, FC Bayern is a brilliantly run club with big aims. I'm very glad that I'm now becoming part of the FC Bayern story."

The Dutch defender moved to Juve from Ajax in 2019 and made 117 appearances for the Italian club.
