Rumour: Nemanja Matic linked to Mourinho’s new Manchester United


The transfer rumour mill is in over drive since Jose Mourinho was appointed the new Manchester United manager. However one of the more likely deals, is a raid on his former club Chelsea for midfielder Nemanja Matic, 27.

Serbian international Matic enjoyed a fantastic first season during his second spell at Stamford Bridge, when Mourinho brought him back to Chelsea for £21m from Benfica.

The Portuguese manager will now look to make the player his first signing at United, with a £25m bid and immediately bolster his midfield options.

While Matic is thought to be keen on the move, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will entertain any offers, in particular from a Premier League rival.
