Matuidi to Juventus delayed

Blaise Matuidi has completed his Juventus medical, but the deal isn’t done yet because Paris Saint-Germain seek detailed incentives.

The 30-year-old France international arrived yesterday and underwent a series of tests in Turin.

“We have a verbal agreement with PSG and it will soon be official,” Juventus director Beppe Marotta told reporters today.

According to Le Parisien, the delay is due to some details with regards to the bonuses.

It’s no small issue, as the transfer is believed to be worth €20m plus up to €10m in various incentives.

Sky Sport Italia are confident the deal will be finalised tomorrow, when PSG send through the documentation.

If the situation is not sorted out quickly, Matuidi won’t be in the squad for Saturday’s Serie A opener against Cagliari.

It was reported the bonuses were based on the number of appearances he would make per season.
