Matuidi confirms he rejected English clubs

PSG star rejected £35million offers from Arsenal, United and Chelsea

Paris Saint Germain star Blaise Matuidi has confirmed that he rejected opportunities to join big English clubs last year.

The 28-year-old Frenchman had chances to join Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea at some points last year, but had no desire to leave his home country.

Matuidi told French radio station RMC: “It’s true that I had requests, notably last year.

“But I always wanted to grow and develop at PSG because this team is built to win big competitions.

“I feel good at the club and in the city. I’m Parisian so I really want to play with PSG.

“My priority was always to stay here. In life you never know what tomorrow will bring but today I’m really happy at PSG.”
