Jorge Jesus has asked the arrival of the French defender
Mathieu has already played his last match with FC Barcelona. The French defender is one of the players who will leave the club this summer... and his destination could be Portugal.
The Portuguese newspaper A BOLA reports that Sporting de Portugal is interested in the 33 year old defender. Their manager, Jorge Jesus, has asked his arrival to strengthen the defensive line.
Mathieu arrived to Barcelona back in the 2014. The Catalan club paid 20 million euros to Valencia. This season, his injuries and the good performances from Piqué, Umtiti and Mascherano didn't let him perform at his best level.
