The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder claims he is happy with the Ligue 1 champions despite being denied his desired move to the Serie A champions
Matuidi was the subject of prolonged transfer speculation after his France international team-mate Paul Pogba left Juve to join Manchester United in a world-record move.
The 29-year-old midfielder told TF1's Telefoot programme that an offer was on the table from the Serie A champions and he was disappointed to see it rejected by PSG - echoing claims made by his agent Mino Raiola.
"There was a concrete demand. Yes, I wanted to go at the time," Matuidi said.
"The club decided otherwise and I had to accept it. There was a difficult period because I had a wish that has not been fulfilled."
Nevertheless, Matuidi is looking forward to the season ahead at the Parc des Princes under new boss Unai Emery.
"I'm not unhappy at PSG, far from it," he added. "There is a new coach and I know he trusts me."
