Ma­tu­idi: Trans­fer away was blocked by PSG

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Paris Saint-Ger­main mid­fielder Blaise Ma­tu­idi wanted to leave the French cham­pi­ons dur­ing the re­cent sum­mer trans­fer win­dow, but says his “wish wasn’t granted” be­cause the club blocked the move. Ma­tu­idi was heav­ily linked with a move to Ital­ian cham­pi­ons Ju­ven­tus as a re­place­ment for mid­fielder Paul Pogba, who was sold to Manch­ester United. “There was a con­crete of­fer,” Ma­tu­idi said on French foot­ball show Tele­foot. “I did want to leave. The club de­cided oth­er­wise and I had to ac­cept it.” Ma­tu­idi has played more than 200 games for PSG, help­ing them win four league ti­tles and two con­sec­u­tive do­mes­tic tre­bles. He has been one of the club’s key play­ers in re­cent sea­sons. Key play­ers have left PSG this sum­mer, with Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic join­ing Manch­ester United and de­fender David Luiz re-join­ing Chelsea.
