Juventus turn to Matic for midfield

July 14, 2017 - 9:11 am

Despite meeting with Mino Raiola for Blaise Matuidi, Juve’s attention has shifted to Nemanja Matic as they look to beef up the midfield.

The Bianconeri met with Raiola to finalise Moise Kean’s first professional deal and took the time to discuss Blaise Matuidi, however it’s believed PSG’s high asking price and the player’s age has forced them to look elsewhere in their search for a midfielder.

As such, Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Chelsea’s Matic could be the ideal choice as he Slovak-Serbian citizenship making him exempt from occupying a non-EU spot following the official registrations of Douglas Costa and Rodrigo Bentancur.

The impending arrival of Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is expected to join Chelsea today, could make Matic surplus to requirements which could work in Juve’s favour.

    Things had quieted on Sandro but this will surely put his name back in the mix to leave the club. Why would Chelsea sell Matic to us since we would not budge on Sandro.

    We should target William Carvahlo, he’s young and experienced having played in the champions league with sporting lisbon as well as winning the euro cup with portugal. I believe he would like to take a step up to a bigger club and since their is no interest in him, we could get him for cheap!
