Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in Chelsea midfielder, and the man he has already signed once during his career – Nemanja Matic. The big Serbian had a huge effect on proceedings at Stamford Bridge during his debut season, and helped guide his side to the title.
Now the usually reliable Gianluca Di Marzio says that Manchester United officials have already contacted the Chelsea hierarchy about the possibility of bringing the 28-year old to the Theatre of Dreams.
United have been crying out for a player built in Matic’s mould for years. He would provide some much-needed steel and physicality to the middle of the park, which has certainly been lacking.
Chelsea obviously wouldn’t want to part with one of their first-team regulars, and the idea of selling him to a Premier League rival would make this transfer an extremely tough one to complete.
However, if the player wants the move desperately enough, then he could well force his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer.
