Blaise Matuidi Left Juventus – Long Journey Comes To End

Blaise Matuidi is no more a part of Juventus
Blaise Matuidi exits Juventus to join former teammate David Beckham's MLS club Inter Miami.

On Monday, Juventus officially announced that their contract with Blaise Matuidi had been terminated. The club put up a statement on their official website that Matuidi will be joining MLS side Inter Miami. After leaving Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, Matuidi joined Juventus for 20 million euros. Reports say that he is all set to join David Beckham’s major club Inter Miami. The termination was mutual. On 19th August 2017, Matuidi played the first time for the Italian Giants against Cagliari Calcio and scored his debut goal before Christmas against Bologna. He has won the Coppa Italia, Supercopa de Italia, and three Seria A titles. In these three years, he participated in 133 games, second to Paulo Dybala.

During the UEFA Champions League 2017-18, he went for a goal taking advantage of Keylor Navas, and this is considered a big moment during his time in Juventus. He was always persistent even though we saw some moments where he used a good position to get into a dangerous place. Matuidi also had to face racial discrimination and was abused during the games. All this had caused pain and made him upset, affecting his game. He also received criticism from his own fans, which made it more difficult for him. Despite all this, he was always committed to his team and played hard every time he was out on the field.

During his time in PSG, he won 4 Ligue 1 titles. Earlier, Matuidi had also been a part of the Troyes AC and Saint-Etienne. Now, signing with inter Miami, he will be uniting with David Beckham with whom he used to play, back in 2013 in PSG. Beckham stated on Thursday that he is happy and excited as Matuidi is not only a gifted player but also an amazing person. Matuidi joining the club will make the team more competitive on the field. Matuidi’s signing was done through a deal using Targeted Allocation Money rather than a DP of midfield. Even after hiring him, the club has enough money to buy another high-class player.

Matuidi’s joining will help in making Pizzaro’s, Pellegrini’s, Robbie Robinson’s, and Julian Carranza’s game better. The new DP will also be joining the team, and the team will finally be completed. His signing shows the creativity that Miami is thinking of a big game. Miami wants to be a Super Club and is planning this way to achieve the goal. In black and white, Matuidi was worthy of the shirt. He shared a heartfelt note with the fans confirming his exit. Although his time with the club has come to an end, the fans will always respect him. Let us know in the comments section what are your thoughts on Beckham’s new signing.
