The Frenchman has arrived in Torino ahead of his proposed move to the Italian champions.
The 30-year old Toulouse born midfielder will reportedly join the Bianconeri for €20 million plus bonuses. Coincidentally, it is the same price Juventus paid for fellow compatriot Patrick Vieira.
Blaise Matuidi will likely play alongside Miralem Pjanic, to provide more muscle in the midfield, which has been lacking since the departures of both Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
In an IFD poll, Juventus fans were less than convinced that Matuidi will be the signing the club needs to compete on all fronts this season.

After six years at the French capital, Matuidi’s future speaks Italian. The club will make an official announcement later this evening on his arrival.
