Matthijs de Ligt’s future at Bayern to remain unclear until a new manager is selected

As Thomas Tuchel’s time in Munich expires this June as revealed earlier this week, the club’s choice of a new head coach is set to play a crucial role in determining whether Matthijs de Ligt’s future belongs to Bayern. Despite de Ligt’s desire for more consistent playtime under Tuchel, the Dutch defender’s future hangs in the balance, attracting interest among Europe’s elite clubs.

PSG showed interest in securing de Ligt’s services during the January transfer window, and with the Premier League giants also in the mix, the summer could bring a fresh chapter for the Netherlands international. Matthijs de Ligt’s involvement in Bayern’s campaign since the turn of 2024 suggests a potentially significant role in the team’s dynamics, having been a starter in 8 of the 10 matches played this year. To secure his future at Bayern, the 24-year-old must capitalize on the recent opportunities arising from the injuries that have plagued the team’s defensive department.

Matthijs de Ligt’s journey started from Ajax, where he captained the team to a Champions League semi-final, to the battlegrounds in Serie A with Juventus, and finally to the ranks of Bayern Munich.
