Chelsea want €45million for Juventus and Manchester United target Nemanja Matic

Juventus have left the door open for Manchester United to have a clear run at signing Nemanja Matic after baulking at Chelsea’s €45m valuation, according to reports in Italy.

The former Benfica enforcer has been a cornerstone of a Chelsea midfield that has helped power two title-winning campaigns in the last three seasons, but appears to have been deemed surplus to requirements by Antonio Conte.

Chelsea completed the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco last week and the France international appears destined to take Matic’s spot alongside N’Golo Kante in the champions’ engine room next season.

Matic was omitted from Chelsea’s pre-season squad and on Thursday Corriere dello Sport claimed a meeting took place between the 28-year-old’s agent and Juventus’ director of football Fabio Paratici earlier this week.

The Serbia international is said to be attracted by the proposition of joining the Serie A champions but Juventus are unwilling to meet Chelsea’s current asking price and could turn their attentions to focusing on prising Emre Can from Liverpool instead.
