Juventus back in for Blaise Matuidi

July 25, 2017 - 7:29 pm

Juventus could return to Blaise Matuidi as talks for other targets stall and the Bianconeri remain in the search for a midfielder.

It was all too easy to predict – Sky Sport Italia report that as talks have stalled for Emre Can and Nemanja Matic looks ever more likely to join Manchester United, Juve are back in for PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

It seems that failed negotiations elsewhere could force Juve’s hand as they seek to fill the gap in midfield sooner rather than later. As such, the €40m price tag for 30-year-old Matuidi could be negotiated down as its suggested Juve have resumed talks for Mino Raiola’s favourite son.

      Groetzka is more of an out and out Attacking midfielder though, and we already have Betancour, For a DM(what we need) the choices are: Matic, Matuidi, N’Zonzi, and Can) We aren’t moving for Bakayoko because Chelsea already got him, and we aren’t getting Fabinho unfortunately, because he doesnt have a passport

        Actually, Fabinho signed for A. Madrid. Only due to their ban, they will have to wait until December for the transfer to go through. I do not know Groetzka. No opinion there. Can does not seem to me to be any upgrade to our current Mids, Madragora and Bentancur have the same potential as him , plus he is to unstable to build on to him from day one. My opinion is to stay as we are, unless one of the Khedira – Pjanic – Marchisio trio goes, and try and give as much playing time to Bentancur and Madragora as possible, so that they can take over from the old guard gradually. So unless someone goes, or we manage to get a deal for a serious name, like Verrati, there is no need for us to get anyone.

          That can’t be they can’t sign anyone period, untill next year, the best they can do is under the table agreements, but the players can still choose to go elsewher, the players are not leagally bind to anything just like Lacazette and his move to Arsenal.

          I agree on what u say about Can, however when the alternatives are Matuidi, and N’zonsi Can is the best option if you ask me, of course Matic would be ideal, but Beppe already told chelsea they aren’t paying 40-45M for him, i say we give them Higuain and include Matic in a swap + Cash but that is just me.

          the point is that Betancour and Mandragona aren’t natural CDM’s they would have to adapt their game and learn a new position, what we need is control of the midfield, someone to dictate tempo and possession, Khedira can’t do it alone, and Pjanic has far better uses than helping out Khedira in that regard.

    Why don’t we just ask Chelsea for (Matic + 40M to 50M) in exchange for (Higuain) and we use the cash to get a better caliber CF for sale like (Aubameyang or Muller)? It seems like a no brainer, we dont have to settle for sub standard talent in Can or Matuidi

    Honestly We don’t this player or 40mil for matic. Please sign a player like rakitic, verrati or kroos. That’s what we need.
