Chelsea transfer news: Juventus planning £30 million Nemanja Matic bid if Paul Pogba joins Manchester United
The France international is closing in on a world record return to Old Trafford just four years after he left on a free transfer to join the Italian champions.
Pogba’s departure will leave Juve with a hole in the middle of their midfield and the club are hunting for a replacement.
Matic, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, is the man identified by the Italian champions to come in and fill the void.
The Serbian’s future at Stamford Bridge is currently uncertain following the arrival of Leicester City star N’Golo Kante.
And Juve are ready to test Chelsea’s resolve by trying to prise Matic away from west London with a bid of around £30m.
