Juventus join battle for Chelsea midfielder

Руководство итальянской федерации футбола приняло решение перенести финал Кубка Италии

Juventus are joining the race for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The 28-year-old midfielder has rejected a new contract offer from Chelsea and the club head coach Antonio Conte is prepared to sell. Nonetheless, the 47-year-old specialist would prefer to push Matic towards a foreign club, rather than the player’s preference, Manchester United.

Inter Milan have expressed interest in Matic, but now face competition from the Serie A titleholders Juventus.

The Italian club manager Max Allegri is a big fan of Matic and favours signing him ahead of PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
