Matthijs de Ligt's move to Bayern Munich was one of the biggest of the past transfer summer. Although he has only been playing in Munich for a few months, he is already drawing a positive interim conclusion.
Although three years late, Matthijs de Ligt finally moved to Säbener Straße last summer. This change was already a possibility in 2019, but it did not materialize. At that time, the 23-year-old was drawn to Juventus Turin.
The Dutchman has already completed 18 competitive games for Bayern. He first had to get used to the new and completely different style of play compared to Juve, but in the end he found his way into the Munich starting eleven quite quickly.
His first interim conclusion, which he drew in the picture podcast 'Bayern Insider', is correspondingly positive.
"I think I've developed very well at Bayern Munich. I feel very good too, we played well," he summed up. The statistics prove him right: of his 18 appearances to date, he has already completed 14 from the starting XI. Julian Nagelsmann was able to trust him early on.
After an overall good but not exceptionally strong time in Italy, he wanted to start a new chapter and develop further. "The plan worked, that's very nice," said the Dutchman.
At the moment, however, he is not thinking about the rest of the season with FCB. For him, the focus at the moment is clearly on the World Cup. He is "not thinking at all at this moment" about the round of 16 in the Champions League, when it comes to the exciting duel with Paris Saint-Germain.
