Midfielder Blaise Matuidi is on the verge of signing for Juventus, who have agreed to pay Paris Saint-Germain €20 million plus bonuses, according to reports on Wednesday.
French international Matuidi, who won four consecutive league titles with PSG, is expected at Torino’s Caselle airport later on Wednesday to undergo a medical and sign a deal that would see the 30-year-old earn €3.5m per season, according to Gazzetta dello Sport’s website.
The box-to-box midfielder, known for his strength on the ball and his ability to win back possession, has been a Juventus target for some time.
If confirmed, Matuidi would become Juve’s ninth signing of the season alongside the likes of Douglas Costa (Bayern Munich), Mattia Di Sciglio (AC Milan), Federico Bernardeschi (Fiorentina) and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (Roma).
