According to Calcio Mercato, French international Blaise Matuidi is linked with a move away from the Old Lady and it is stated that Man United and Arsenal are in pole position to hire his services.
The Italian outlet have also mentioned Olympique Lyo are also interested in signing the World Cup winning star, who has recently extended his contract with the Bianconeri till 2021.
The hard working midfielder has so far played 84 games for the senior national side and scored 9 goals.
Matuidi made 295 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain and won every major domestic title with the club before opting to sign for Juve in 2017. In Italy, he has also won every major domestic title.
It must be remembered that the Italian giants have got midfielders like Ramsey, Bentacur, Khedira, Pjanic and Rabiot around, still, at 32, the Les Bleus midfielder has regularly started in the current campaign under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.
United do need to improve their midfield department and Matuidi has got the quality and experience to strengthen Solskjaer’s team. However, the former Ligue 1 star is represented by Mino Raoila, who has publicly criticized Manchester United for the treatment of Paul Pogba recently. So, it will be fair to say that the super agent would not want the £83,000-a-week player (The Express) to move to Old Trafford.
Moreover, the veteran Frenchman would only be a short term fix taking into consideration that he will turn 33 in April.
Therefore, Man United should not look to lure Blaise Matuidi, instead, Woodward must splash the cash to sign a proven quality and young star to reinforce things in the center of the park.
