Matuidi to cost Juve almost €30m

Blaise Matuidi underwent the first part of his Juventus medical today and it’s reported they’ll pay Paris Saint-Germain €20m plus up to €10m in bonuses.

The France international arrived in Turin this morning and had his medical this afternoon, though more tests are expected tomorrow.

Sky Sport Italia claim the cost of the operation is €20m plus up to another €10m in various bonuses.

These will largely be based on the number of appearances and in order to get the full €10m, Matuidi would need to play 80 per cent of the games per season.

It’s believed to be a three-year contract with an option for a fourth.

These figures do not include the commission for his agent, Mino Raiola.

Aged 30, Matuidi spent his entire career in France at Troyes, Saint-Etienne and since 2011 at PSG.

He has eight goals in 58 senior caps for Les Bleus and was named France’s Player of the Year in 2015.

Matuidi’s contract with PSG had been due to expire in June 2018.
