According to reports, Blaise Matuidi has flown to England to try to work out his future. The 29 year old French combative midfielder is being linked to a £22m move to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United empire, NBCSports understands.
Matuidi was allowed to leave France by Didier Deschamps following Les Blues’ quarterfinal win over Iceland and is expected to return to camp ahead of the huge semifinal clash against Germany on Thursday.
After signing Eric Bailly for $40 million, securing the signature of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, having a deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan all but secured and being heavily linked with Mexican sensation Hirving Lozano, it is believed another world class talent could be heading to Old Trafford.
Multiple reports from France are stating that Blaise Matuidi flew to England on Monday morning to try and work on his future, with the French version of Goal.com stating that Didier Descahmps allowed the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder to leave the French camp following their quarterfinal win over Iceland on Sunday.
The main man behind this incredible transfer spree for United is so-called “super agent” Mino Raiola who also represents Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan, as well as, you guessed it, Matuidi.
Matuidi has been on United’s wishlist for some time and it looked like he could be joining them in 2014 but he instead decided to remain at PSG.
However, with PSG’s new manager Unai Emery looking to make big chances at Les Parisiens this summer, Matuidi could be one of those players made available after the arrival of Hatem Ben Arfa and Grzegorz Krychowiak incentral midfield.
Plus, with Paul Pogba’s price escalating by the day, Matuidi would be a good buy for United to improve the industry and bite in central midfield. Mourinho loves those type of midfield destroyers with Nemanja Matic coming to mind as a perfect example.
