FC Bayern Munich have signed Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus Turin on a five-year deal Worth 80 million euros [£67.8m].
The fee matched Bayern’s transfer record, paid for Atlético Madrid defender Lucas Hernández in 2019.
De Ligt, 22, joined Juventus on a five-year deal from Ajax in July 2019 and spent three seasons with the Serie A champions.
“I am very happy to become a player for this great club,” said de Ligt.
“FC Bayern is one of the most successful clubs in Germany, one of the most successful clubs in Europe and the world.
“Right from the start I felt the real appreciation of the sporting management, the coach and the board of directors, which convinced me. It is also an excellently managed club with big goals.”
“I am very happy that I am now part of the history of FC Bayern.”
De Ligt won a Serie A title and a Coppa Italia in 117 games for Juventus.
He was wanted by Chelsea and became the second Dutch international to join Bayern this summer, following the arrival of midfielder Ryan Gravenberch at the club.
Bayern have also bought Sadio Mane from Liverpool and right-back Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax, while striker Robert Lewandowski is ready to join Barcelona.
