PSG to offer Chelsea target €10m contract
The French champions are desperate to tie down Blaise Matuidi to the Parc des Princes
PSG are set to offer Chelsea target Blaise Matuidi a €10million-a-year contract in order to convince him to stay at the club, according to Le 10 Sport.
There has thus far been complication in negotiations regarding an extension to his current deal, mainly down to the interference of various agents, but with his current contract expiring in June 2014, PSG are desperate to tie him down for the long-term.
Chelsea have registered a keen interest in the France midfielder and Manchester City are also said to be sniffing around, but he is believed to be firmly locked in talks with his current club.
According to Le 10, the new deal would see Matuidi taking home around €10million a year until 2018, a marked improvement on his current contract which sees him earning three times less than that figure.
It remains to be seen if the 26-year-old will pledge his loyalty to the French champions or opt to move to the Premier League, but it's likely his future will be decided sooner rather than later.
