Matuidi saw the transfer window close still in Paris.
“There was a concrete offer," the midfielder told Le Parisien. “Yes, at a certain point I wished to leave. The club decided otherwise, and we had to accept that.
“I know that there's a lot of faith placed in me. We had some very long discussions with the Coach. His input mattered a lot for the club when they made their decision.
“It's true that this was a bit of a delicate period, because I had a wish and it wasn't fulfilled. But I am not unhappy at PSG, not by a long stretch. I'm very happy."
