Blaise Matuidi arrives in Turin for Juventus medical

August 16, 2017 - 3:26 pm

Blaise Matuidi has arrived in Turin ahead of his medical with Juventus and is expected to be confirmed as a new signing later today.

Having missed out on Nemanja Matic and Emre Can, it seems Juve have resorted to their fall-back option by agreeing terms for French international Matuidi.

Matuidi is expected to cost Juventus in the region of €20m plus bonuses, putting pen to paper on a 3-year contract which will reportedly earn him €4.5m per season.

The player has landed at Turin airport and is expected to undergo his medical this afternoon before being presented to fans later today or tomorrow morning.

    For 20m, just too much….no second value

          If we wont bring Cancelo, the best possible IX should be Buffon Lichsteiner Rugani Chiellini Sandro Pjanic Matuidi Costa (RW)Dybala Bernardeschi (LW) Higuain .
          I put Stephan over MDS cos he is much better in defending and in all honesty MDS is average player IMO.If we bring Cancelo, he should be starter.He is like Sandro but Alex is much better in def.This season is going to be all about attack, we have tons of potential and we gotta use it.

            Dont you think that Spina from Ata is coming?
            Lichtsteiner is to old. His passes oh good Lord….just like Barzagli. They are good against Udinese or Chievo.

            The rest of your lineup is fine with me. Hopefully Max is with us.

            Spina should come , once Ata will get Laxalt, we can sell Asa and bring back Spina.I know he is too old, but MDS is as bad passer/crosser as Lichsteiner lol

    I would really appreciate this signing if we still buy a real DM like N’Zonzi. Do you guys think its still possible ?

        No but he isn’t a DM, he s a box to box. He’d be good inestad of Khedira but we actually need a real DM like N’Zonzi to play alongside Pjanic in a 4-2-3-1

          Doesnt he play as DM in 4231 for France? Alongside Pogba?Not sure now. he may be BTB but , more defensive minded, exactly what we need now.
