Given the sums of money being passed around this summer for transfers, signing a player like Blaise Matuidi for €20million can be considered a bargain.
Juventus will pay, sooner or later, another €10.5m in add-ons, but even at €30m, in today’s football world, they still got themselves a bargain signing the France international from Paris Saint-Germain.
As for Matuidi himself, he couldn’t look more enthusiastic in his first interview as a Juventus player, talking to the club’s official website.
I’m delighted, I feel really proud to be able to wear this shirt. I’m honoured to wear the Juventus shirt. I can’t wait to meet my new team-mates and get onto the field and start the season with my new team
the French midfielder said, soon after he signed his three-year contract.
Juventus have won Serie A for many years in a row and they’re always aiming high in Europe too. We share the same level of ambition. This is a very massive club and as I’ve said this is an honour
Matuidi repeated, before ‘remembering’ other French players, true legends of the game, who have played for the Bianconeri.
I can’t wait to do my bit to help the team keep winning and adding to the trophies they already have. As a lover of football, I know all the great players that have made history at Juventus such as Zidane, Platini and Deschamps
the latest signing of the Serie A champions said.
