Jose Mourinho has already added some power back to the Manchester United squad, by bringing in Eric Bailly from Villareal. However, it is clear the self-proclaimed Special One still wants to bring in some more physicality if this latest rumour is anything to go by.
According to the Sunday People, Manchester United are planning a huge swap deal involving Matteo Darmian and Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic.
Jose Mourinho has already prepared his shopping list for Edward Woodward, and Matic reportedly sits at the very top. The Chelsea man is a real midfield general who doesn’t take any prisoners. In terms of a defensive midfielder, there aren’t many better than him in world football.
Matteo Darmian had a very mixed first season at Old Trafford. The Italian started brilliantly and looked like a real bargain. However, as the season went on his form got worse and worse, and in May he looked completely bereft of confidence. You can sort of see why Mourinho wants rid.
