Man United keeping tabs with €25m-rated France international
Man United are keen on bringing Juventus footballer Blaise Matuidi to the Old Trafford. Red Devils have already made a contract with the Bianconeri in regards to France international, it’s understood that the tireless midfielder is valued at nearly £25m.
PSG, Lyon, Monaco and Everton are also interested in Blaise, and there will be a contest for the player. Man United are in desperate need of bolstering their midfield ranks this transfer window and Matuidi’s signature would undoubtedly provide the cool, calm and collected head that the Red Devils have missed in the middle of the park.
Norwegian manager is tasked with replacing Ander Herrera this summer, the Spaniard has just left Old Trafford to join PSG on a free transfer. Solskjaer certainly needs to sign a quality midfielder to put the pressure on the likes of Nemanja Matic and Fred next campaign.
The signing of Frenchman would also significantly improve Man United’s chances of getting the best out of Paul Pogba, the playmaker would undoubtedly be more comfortable in midfield if he was alongside his international partner. The 32-year-old midfielder’s place in Juventus’ lineup is under threat next season.
Old Lady have signed midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot this transfer window, with Matuidi being the oldest of the trio it’s unsure whether or not the 32-year-old will figure into Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
The Frenchman’s age shouldn’t be made into a massive issue, as it’s worth noting that the midfielder can provide the balance between youth and experience that Red Devils will need to be successful next campaign.
