Chelsea & Man United transfer battle: PSG boss admits 50-cap star could leave

According to reports from L’Equipe, manager Unai Emery has hinted Chelsea and Manchester United target Blaise Matuidi could leave PSG before the end of the summer transfer window.

The France international’s future at Parc de Princes has come under heavy speculation in recent weeks and particularly since Sevilla enforcer Grzegorz Krychowiak followed Emery to the French capital.

Indeed, Goal France reported during Euro 2016 that the 29-year-old had left his country’s training camp to hold transfer talks with a Premier League club, believed to be Manchester United.

And Le Parisien have since claimed the industrious midfielder would be open to signing for Arsenal or the Red Devils – and that he’s ready to leave the Ligue 1 champions.

Fellow French publication L’Equipe now put Chelsea, United and Juventus in the frame to snap up Matuidi following the latest comments from manager Unai Emery.

The Spaniard was hardly committal when quizzed on the 50-cap international’s future, telling reporters; “He is a very good player. We have a lot of left-footed defensive midfielders. If he has the opportunity to leave and if he thinks there are too many midfielders here… But I do not want him to go.”
