Chelsea star closing in on Juventus move

Nemanja Matic

Midfielder, Nemanja Matic, is set to quit Chelsea and is closing in on a sensational £20m deal to Serie A champions, Juventus, according to Daily Star.

Talks over a deal for the midfield powerhouse have been going on for more than a week and the Italian club are confident a deal can be struck.

The 27-year-old has been out-of-form for most of the current campaign, after he was one of the lynchpins of the Chelsea team that won the title last year.

He was signed by Chelsea from MFK Kosice for £1.5m in 2009, he failed to break through and was then sold to Benfica in a swap deal for Brazil defender David Luiz.

Chelsea paid £21m to bring him back in 2014.

The Serbian could be one of the first players out of the door as new Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, prepares to take control this summer.

The blues have recently secured a deal for Roma midfielder, Radja Nainggolan.

Columbia winger, Juan Cuadrado, is set to be given a second taste of the English Premier League and will return to Chelsea after a season-long loan spell in Turin.
