In a very unusual manner, France has granted temporary leave to Blaise Matuidi so that he can sort out his transfer talks with Manchester United.
The player has been a regular at Paris Saint-Germain and has helped the club win four titles since 2012. He has made 165 appearances and has scored 19 goals during his tenure. Several clubs have shown interest but United seem to be in a pole position to sign him this summer. Manchester United has already purchased Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. There are strong reports about a possible move for Paul Pogba as well. With most of the positions covered, Jose Mourinho is now looking to sign a central midfielder and Blaise Matuidi’s name seems to be on the top.
According to goal.com, Didier Deschamps has allowed Matuidi short leave in order to speak to Manchester United and sort things out. Matuidi may be needed to fill in for Juan Mata who has been strongly linked with a move to Everton.
