MATUIDI NOT REGRETTING FAILED JUVENTUS MOVE
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi has stressed that he does not have any regrets over his failed move to Juventus during the close season.
The Serie A champions were keen to lure the France international to Turin ahead of the 2016-17 campaign after selling Paul Pogba to Manchester United.
“It is true that there was contact with Juventus on more than one occasion,” Matuidi told beIN Sports.
“My agent and I had some meetings with the club after Euro 2016. I wanted to talk with PSG to understand what my situation would be under the new coach. I wanted clarity and I understood everything after having a chat with Emery.
“I was considering leaving Paris at one point, but I am very happy at PSG now. That is all in the past now and I am proud to still be at PSG. I hope to be able to wear this jersey for a long time.”
The 29-year-old has a contract with the Ligue 1 champions until June 2018.
