Blaise Matuidi: Set to leave PSG, with Juventus interested

Unai Emery has hinted that he is willing to let Blaise Matuidi leave PSG, with Juventus eyeing the midfielder as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba.

Matuidi faces being pushed out of the PSG XI by new arrival  Grzegorz Krychowiak, but the France star is likely to have a number of offers, with Manchester United linked with a move this summer.

According to L’Equipe, Juventus are also in the frame as they search for a replacement for Pogba, who looks set to leave the club for a world-record fee, with Old Trafford being the 23-year-old’s most likely destination.

New PSG boss admitted Matuidi may be heading towards the exit door.

“He is a very good player,” the former Sevilla boss said. “We have a lot of left-footed defensive midfielders. If he has the opportunity to leave and if he thinks there are too many midfielders here… But I do not want him to go.”
