Matuidi to see out Juve deal

Blaise Matuidi has reportedly rejected an offer from Monaco and plans to stay at Juventus for one more season.

Monaco were in talks to bring in Matuidi and his Juve teammate Daniele Rugani, but there has not been any progress.

In the Frenchman’s case, L’Equipe claims he has already made his decision and wants to see out the remainder of his contract with the Bianconeri, which expires next summer.

The 32-year-old was expected to be moved on after Sami Khedira chose to stay, but the Old Lady now look like keeping both.

Maurizio Sarri is keen to trim his squad and, as it stands, he will have six first-team players ineligible for the Champions League.
