Manchester United free midfield option shines in front of David Moyes

Could Manchester United go in for Blaise Matuidi?

David Moyes was in France tonight to watch PSG win 3-1 at Bordeaux.

PSG won through goals from midfielders Javier Pastore, Adrien Rabiot and Blaise Matuidi.

It is tough tackling midfielder Matuidi who is most likely to have piqued the Manchester United manager's interest, because his contract remains unsigned and he can sign on a free transfer in the summer.

Matuidi had only come on as a late substitute, and took just four minutes to make his mark.

During his 15 minutes on the pitch he registered one successful tackle, two successful dribbles as well as the goal.

Being cup-tied for the Champions League may make a deal unlikely now, although PSG could decide to cash in.

Moyes is free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with the midfielder, who The Express claimed was a target for the club a month ago.

One potential red flag, witha report from Sky Italia this evening which claims Matuidi's agent is heading to France to restart negotiations over a new deal.
