Reports in the BBC have today disclosed that Serbian and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is on the verge of completing a switch to Manchester United and the 28 year old has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with Manchester United being his next likely destination after Jose Mourinho identified the player as Michael Carrick’s successor.
With the summer transfer window nearing its end, Jose Mourinho is keen on reuniting with Nemanja Matic after failing to land Tottenham Hotspur’s holding midfielder Eric Dier as the North London club turned down three of Manchester United’s bids.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho when asked about the situation concerning the signing of the Serbian international disclosed that he doesn’t know much but clearly admitted that he would love to have the player as part of his team this season.
The Serbian would cost Manchester United a fee worth up to £50 million after Jose Mourinho signed in to Chelsea for a fee worth just £21 million and the player is also keen on leaving following the arrival of Tiemoue Bagayoko from AS Monaco this summer.
A photo recently surfaced on the internet with Nemanja Matic pictured in a Manchester united kit and it has got fans buzzing and waiting for an announcement.
