Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly in a three-way battle to sign Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi this summer.

According to French media outlet Le Parisien, three clubs including Manchester United have contacted Italian Serie A champions Juventus about a possible move for French World Cup winner Matuidi.

Blaise Matuidi was an important player for France as they won the World Cup last summer.

He was a regular part of the starting XI for the French team under manager Didier Deschamps.

France won their second World Cup tournament in Russia last summer by beating fellow European nation Croatia 4-2 in their final clash.

Blaise Matuidi, 32, might struggle to retain his spot in the Juventus starting XI this season after the Italians recruited two more quality midfielders.

Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot have joined Juventus this summer.

Welsh international Ramsey has signed for the Old Lady on a free transfer after his contract with North London giants Arsenal ran out last month and the same applies to young French international star Rabiot who has also joined Juventus on a free transfer after his PSG contract expired.

Apart from Manchester United, former club PSG and Everton have also enquired about the availability of £20m-rated Blaise Matuidi this summer.
