Juventus turn to Matic for midfield

July 14, 2017

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.
