Juventus have not let go of Blaise Matuidi, claim Tuttosport, as he is not a priority for Paris Saint-Germain.
Last night Coach Max Allegri told Sky Sport Italia that Juve were intent on signing two midfielders rather than one with the money from Paul Pogba’s sale.
Matuidi was one of the early contenders, but had fallen by the wayside in recent weeks behind the likes of Inter man Marcelo Brozovic, Zenit’s Axel Witsel and Cesc Fabregas of Chelsea.
According to Tuttosport this morning, the Bianconeri never did interrupt negotiations for Matuidi and are prepared to push it right to transfer deadline day.
The 29-year-old France international is valued at €30m and PSG stated he was not for sale.
However, Matuidi is not a first choice pick for new Coach Unai Emery and a transfer is therefore possible.
