Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi says the Ligue 1 champions have “not discussed” the possibility of selling midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
France international Matuidi has been linked with a move to Juventus as the replacement for his Manchester United-bound Les Bleus team-mate Paul Pogba, but PSG are keen to retain the 29-year-old.
After announcing the signing of Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid, Al-Khelaifi told a press conference the club are closed for business in this transfer window.
“The transfer window is over for me,” he said. “Matuidi is under contract with us and we have a very good relationship.
“We have not discussed losing Matuidi, who is a pillar of the team.”
Al-Khelaifi also expressed his delight with the work PSG have done in the market this off-season.
“I think Jese is our last recruit this summer transfer window,” the 42-year-old said.
“We have a good team. We are very pleased with our recruitment.”
As well as Jese, the club have signed Hatem Ben Arfa, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Thomas Meunier and Giovani Lo Celso.
