Juventus reportedly need to sell Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi to balance their books

And that, according to Tuttosport, could lead to Khedira, 32, and Matuidi’s departure from Juventus.

After Rabiot puts pen to paper, the Serie A champions will be forced to offload two midfielders.

That’s due to both financial reasons and the size of the current squad.

Lyon could be a potential destination for Matuidi, 32, as they are set to lose Tanguy Ndombele.

Tottenham have reportedly agreed a £55m deal with the Ligue 1 side for the midfielder.

And the French World Cup winner could make a solid replacement for the Lyon star.

Paris Saint-Germain, Matuidi’s former club, is another viable option for the Juventus ace after they lost Rabiot on a free transfer.

Meanwhile, Gonzalo Higuain is heading back to Turin after Chelsea opted against keeping him at Stamford Bridge.

The Argentine wants to see out the remaining two years of his Juventus contract under ex-Blues and Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri.
