Matic agrees to join Juventus

      Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has reportedly agreed a deal to join Juventus this summer, but the Serbian must convince his Premier League club to lower their asking price. Matic, 28, had been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks, while Inter Milan were also believed to be in the running for the experienced midfielder, reports Sun.

Matic, 28, is now trying to convince the Blues to lower their demands after agreeing to a switch to Turin claim Corriere dello Sport.

The midfielder had looked set to join Premier League rivals Manchester United earlier this month for a reunion with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

That move now appears to be a total non-going following the Red Devils’ capture of Romelu Lukaku under the noses of the champions.

Relations between the two clubs have soured since and it seems unlikely that the title winners will do business with United.

Not that the breakdown of that potential deal is causing Matic too many problems.

The Italian newspaper’s front page says that he has already “said yes” to Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

The Serbian international played a key role in Chelsea's Premier League title triumph last term, but the big-money arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS Monaco has placed the midfielder's future in doubt.
