Matuidi expected at Juventus

Reports in France corroborate those in Italy saying Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi could join Juventus today.

It was reported earlier today that the midfielder is expected in Turin for a medical, with TuttoJuve later reporting it will take place at 16.00 local time.

Now Le Parisien quotes an unnamed Juve director as telling them the deal is “very hot indeed”.

The newspaper believes the fee will be around €20m, with Matuidi to sign a three-year contract.

That echoes today’s reports in Italy that the transfer would be worth €20-25m.

L’Équipe, however, puts the fee at €15m plus bonuses, but agrees that a deal is imminent.

As Juventus are listed on the Italian stock exchange, the details of the transfer will have to be made public if and when Matuidi signs.
