MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal will battle it out for Juventus defensive midfielder Blaise Matuidi, according to reports.
The Old Lady are believed to be willing to listen to offers for the 32-year-old as he enters the final year of his contract.
Both Premier League rivals are plotting a squad overhaul in the summer and consider Matuidi’s experience as crucial to their plans.
The veteran is a serial winner having won six league titles and eight domestic trophies during his time at Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
Juve recently exercised the option to extend his contract until the summer of 2021 but only to avoid losing him for nothing in the summer.
Reports in Italian publication CalcioMercato suggest boss Maurizio Sarri could be willing to cash in as they have a wealth of midfielders battling for a first-team spot.
Nemanja Matic is also braced to leave Old Trafford with his contract expiring in the summer.
