Manchester United are battling Bayern Munich for PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
It broke yesterday that Matuidi was traveling to Manchester for talks with United officials.
And tonight, Thibaud Vezirian, a reporter with France’s D8 revealed the situation has intensified:
“He flew during this afternoon and met JosÃ© Mourinho and the staff of Manchester United,” he stated, before appearing on Touche Pas Ã€ Mon Sport:
“He received a call from Jose Mourinho and in this case he has not refused to respond to requests from Manchester United. Carlo Ancelotti, his former coach at PSG, now with Bayern Munich, wants him at all costs.
“Last weekend, he was close to signing for Bayern Munich. Manchester United wanted to know more and JosÃ© Mourinho pulled out his phone to call the Matuidi clan that has subsequently agreed to meet Manchester and it apparently pleased him greatly.
“The feed back is he’ll go to Manchester.”
