Blaise Matuidi’s return to Troyes gathers pace

Local paper L’Est Éclair report today that the possibility of former French international Blaise Matuidi’s return to formative club Troyes is increasing.

The signs point to the former Paris Saint-Germain man being favourable to a return, while the club’s management are unanimously in favour of a deal to bring the midfielder back.

Nevertheless, Troyes face competition, notably from Saint-Étienne as well as a clubs in the Middle East who would be able to outbid them financially.

Nevertheless, his wage – €100,000 a month with Inter Miami, with whom he is likely to terminate his contract given he is absent from their squad list for the MLA season – should not be an issue.

As a result, the only unknown factors so far would remain his level of play at 34 as well as his own willingness to return to Ligue 1 over other potential destinations.
