Chelsea to meet Serie A champions to open negotiations for transfer of midfielder


Juventus are searching for a new midfielder after allowing Paul Pogba to leave the club to join Manchester United.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Blaise Matuidi, Nemanja Matic and Luiz Gustavo are the three players identified by the Bianconeri to replace the Frenchman.

The reigning Serie A champions have already made contact with agent Mino Raiola but are yet to open negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for Blaise Matuidi.

They have also made contact and agreed personal terms with Luiz Gustavo.

But the primary objective for Juventus is still Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Manager Antonio Conte considers the 28-year-old as a key player ahead of the new season but the two clubs are expected to meet on Tuesday to understand how much the Bianconeri are ready to offer to secure the services of the Serbian.
