Juve close in on €45 million deal for Matic

Juventus have been monitoring the news surrounding
the Serbia regarding his transfer, and they are set to
offer the Premier League winner a €45 million to land
the midfielder this summer.
Matic is currently in his second spell with Chelsea,
having rejoined the West London club from Benfica in
2014.
While he failed to make any sort of impact in his first
stint with the Blues, his second coming has been far
more convincing, with the player becoming an integral
component at Stamford Bridge.

The 2016/17 was another special season for Matic as
he played a key role in Chelsea’s record breaking
triumph in the Premier League.
While he did end up sharing game time with Cesc
Fabregas towards the end of the campaign, the Serbia
international was a vital player for Antonio Conte.
Chelsea has made a vital reinforcement in Matic
position, the Blues signed Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS
Monaco, which has threatened Matic presence in the
first XI.
The player has been linked with Manchester United in
recent weeks but the Blues were reluctant to sanction
the deal that will strengthen their rivals.
Juventus remains in pole position to land the Serbian
since Chelsea is not ready to transact with Manchester
United.
Midfield is reportedly a priority for the Juventus boss,
with Sami Khedira and Claudio Marchisio regularly
mired in injury woes.
Thus, Matic has emerged as a viable target for
Juventus to consider, with the player’s defensive
abilities potentially being a big compliment to Pjanic’s
creative abilities.


The Italian champions have already met the Matic’s
representatives, and are likely to make their first move
for him soon. The report states that Chelsea is holding
out for €45 million, an amount that Juventus won’t
have any qualms shelling out.
It now remains to be seen if the Bianconeri can clinch a
deal for Matic, or if other suitors emerge in the race to
sign the player this summer.
