Stoke sign Jese on loan, Matuidi on his way to Juventus

The PSG offload spree seems to have begun, with Jese officially signing for Stoke and Blaise Matuidi on his way to Italian giants Juventus.

The former Real Madrid star has joined the Potters on a season long loan deal and at 24, still has plenty to prove after a disappointing stint in the capital.

Stoke also took the opportunity to take a potshot at former player Marko Arnautovic, who quoted “ambition” as a reason for leaving them this summer for West Ham.

Meanwhile, Matuidi has joined Juventus for 18.2 million pounds (three year contract), a fee that appears to be a pittance compared to the 45m Everton are expected to pay for Sigurdsson or the 40 million being demanded by Leicester for Danny Drinkwater.

With this signing, Stoke also become the PL club with the most CL winners in their squad- (stat courtesy OnFooty)

Other Paris SG players expected to be offloaded include Aurier, Ben Arfa and Krychowiak, and possibly even Julian Draxler (all the above mentioned were left out of the squad that played En Avant Guingamp over the weekend)
