Juventus to bid for Blaise Matuidi

August 4, 2016 - 7:23 am

Juventus will submit a €25m bid for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi in the coming days.

La Stampa report that PSG are ready to part with the midfielder, despite initially placing a €35m price-tag on the French midfielder.

Matuidi has reportedly requested to leave the French champions and is keen on a move to Juventus, having been encouraged by the experiences of Les Bleus teammates, Patrice Evra and Paul Pogba.

Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici are known admirers of the player, having followed him since prior to PSG when he played for St. Etienne.

Juventus have informed his agent Mino Raiola of their intentions to make a bid for the player.

    BAD!!!!!!!!!HORRID!!!!!!!!!DESPICABLE!!!!!!! NIGHTMARISH !!!!!!!! NEWS!!!!!!
    COULD IT FINALLY BE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????

    110M !!!!!!!!???
    – 84M TO JUVE
    – 25M TO RIOLA **paid by Manchester**
    WHAT HAPPENED TO 120M OR 130M?????

    so that is 6M short of what we paid for Higuain. looks like it might not be a record transfer after all

    The Big Question Is WHO WILL REPLACE HIM?????????????? WHO!!!!!!?????

    – 25M For MATUIDI – https://www.around-j.com/juvent

    Personally i think this is a steal and we would be stupid not to
    buy him! 25M is a steal, and he is just as strong and good aerially as
    Pogba not to mention just as young GREAT CHOICE FOR 25M…
    Only bad thing is that Riaola is Matuidi’s agent…so he may go to Man U, next year with the rest of riola’s players XD

    – 32M For LUIS GUSTAVO – https://www.calciomercato.com/e

    i think this is a Stupid move! Gustavo is at the end of his time, he is
    not what he once was, not to mention he is for to Old and Slow for that
    price tag….ive never been a follower of gustavo, but in what i have
    seen he isnt memorable or overtly talented so 32M is A LOT for him
    ….Much Much rather Matuidi…or even Witsel. Luis Gustavo should be
    our final desperate option if there is really no one left to buy
    …though even then i might not like this move

    – 35M For MOUSSA SISSOKO https://www.calciomercato.com/e

    i like this move, Assuming he keeps and improves on what he showcased
    in France, he is a very good buy at 35M (idk how he plays at newcasttle,
    never been bothered to see a newcasttle game, im just judging him by
    his cup run in france). considering he is the same price tag as Gustavo
    this isnt a bad buy, we should do it if we cant get Matuidi.or even
    instead of Matuidi, they are both young and proven talent
    nonetheless…same cant be said for Luis Gustavo who isn’t even a
    starter for the Brazilian A team

    – Witsel has been set at 35M by the russians as they rejected our 15M bid, if we wait till next season we can have him for free.

    im not a huge fan, havent really seen him play to be fair aside from a
    couple world cup belgian games and some highlight reels on youtube that
    havent impressed me, but he is very young and for a Free or Low price
    tag I WELCOME HIM WITH OPEN ARMS! he can always still grow and develop
    beside us

    – Matic

    as much as i like the idea of him coming
    …i dont see it very probable now that Conte has said he wants to keep
    him :/. So i think we can all FORGET ABOUT THIS ONE, UNFORTUNATELY,
    Unless we OVER PAY wich i dont deem worth it considering the price tags
    and prospects of Matuidi and Sissoko

    i still think we should bid
    For Rakatic, and
    For Shwansteiger (who will be cheap and has been offered to us) https://www.calciomercato.com/e

    I would Preffer Shwansteiger ABOVE ALL!….. I THINK WE CAN TURN HIM
    AROUND and i think i preffer Sissoko than Matuidi, although then we look
    at the price tag and say well Matuidi is a steal for the price….i’d
    be fine with either Matuidi, Sissoko or Shwansteiger.

          You need to research what facts means. Just because the media slings out numbers, doesn’t make it facts. Until something official is out there is no point to discussing this.

      man, sissoko had one good game for france, otherwise he was terrible for N’castle for the whole year,so wut makes him costs 35m? one game? nope thanx, 20m max, matuidi is good for 25m but he is no magician like pogba, try to imagine this mid line up – matuidi, pjanic, khedira – all the creativity would jump on pjanic’ shoulders and i dont think it’s good idea, we need some one with some vision, some1 who can beat his opponent 1on1 , well sissoko showed that he is capable of doing it, but, he did it by his will &power not by footwork, he outsprinted and outmuscled them,then, i worry about his consistency 35m is just too much, we have lemina, the guy has potential, he just needs the chance, but i like the matic idea, if we sell pogba we should get him or hector herrera from porto, maybe rakitic, should be np cos barca bought gomes.

        cant really argue with anything you said, you are correct….however i prefer to gamble on Sissoko than get Luis Gustavo…..I like the Matic idea to, i just dont think it is very realistic (taking in account Conte’s recent statments.

        Hector Herrera will also be good, however there is no word on a bid yet

      You do realise Matuidi is 29-30 years old? Not 23?

        your right lol for some reason i had in my head that he was 24ish…….damn it ive been living a lie LOL, nonetheless he doesnt move like a 29 yr old

          Haha, he does look younger than he is. And to shatter one more idea, Witsel is also 27, not a young gun anymore.

          You seem to estimate both younger than they are

      Your enthusiasm is great GQ! Buf seriously chap can we please drop any and all ideas/thoughts/notions of Bastian S, Depay or Sissoko coming to Juve! They are either turkeys living on past glory (BS), or just turkeys who have no past glories to live off. A trio of more underperforming, underwhelming overpaid Premier League flops I can’t imagine.

      All of them were really poor last season for their respective teams, and when you put that into context of how awful bith MU and NU actually were last season that sounds big loud alarm bells to stay clear of them. They do not possess tge quality or desire needed to be worthy of wearing our shirt.

          correcto! Pogba leaving …the fact that its even a possibility is all Riola’s doing. At first pogba was clear “i am happy at Juventus”, “i want to stay at Juventus”,”i would only leave juventus for Real Madrid”; then Riola got in tuoch with United even after we rejected initial bids,and now we have this whole Fiasco….Manchester United is looking more like Riola United now, and its mostly Riola’s doing

          C’mon we all know Pogba, we all know his ambitions, and we all know moving to United is the stupidest career descicion he can make right now, but im sure Riola is whispering in his ears, telling him about how it feels to have unlimited wealth and such. None of us ever thought possible Pogba would consider a money move, last season or even at the start of this transfer season, and now look….Riola can be very persuasive.

        40 mil for vidal was a steal.He will not come because there is too much tension b/w juve and psg

    Really good and lively player but hopefully not a replacement for Pogba. 25mill is also fair market value, paying anything over will be a waste of money……. this guy is 29 afterall.

    Meanwhile, Sassuolo beat Luzern 3-0 and thus they advance with an aggregate score of 4-1 to the final qualifying round of the Europa League! Berardi scored a brace in the first half!

    Go Sassuolo!
