Juventus keen on Chelsea midfielder

Juventus are hoping to sign Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic who is keen to leave the club.

Chelsea want to keep the Serbian midfielder at Stamford Bridge to see how he gets on next season under new manager Antonio Conte, but the Italians former club Juventus are keen on taking the 27-year old midfielder to Turin.

Matic still has three-years on his contract with Chelsea, which would allow the Blues to demand a hefty fee, although TalkSPORT claim that Chelsea want £18million for the midfielder, although that seems a little low.

Matic has also been linked with reuniting with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who was unveiled as Manchester United boss yesterday and revealed he is in the market for a fourth summer signing. However that is thought to be Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Juventus will be keen to wrap up a deal for Matic as soon as they can, to ensure that both midfielders end up at Old Trafford.
