Manchester United fans have been reacting with excitement on social media to suggestions that they are about to sign France international midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
Paris Saint-Germain star Matuidi, who has been an ever-present in midfield for France at Euro 2016, was given permission to travel to England for talks over his future.
And while there has been no confirmation, reports have suggested United are the club at the centre of the discussions, with fans of the Red Devils already getting excited at the prospect of another arrival from the French capital…
When Matuidi signs, you can bring on Barcelona.

Matuidi brings industry into the midfield. Very strong and very similar to Kante. Not a marquee signing but a guy that can get the job done.

Imagine slating the Matuidi links when our midfield currently consists of elbows, an injury prone 31 year old and Carrick

Fans who don’t rate Matuidi know nothing about football.

Matuidi isn’t even bad lol people don’t have their actual opinions, they follow trends. If you watched him last season you’d know.

I’d settle for Matuidi, he’s much cheaper than Pogba and can get the job done.

I will happily take Matuidi at OT. Exactly what we need.
