Man Utd Close-In On Deal To Sign £40m International

By on July 26, 2017

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is close to joining Man Utd….

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is close to securing a move to Manchester United after Juventus turned their attention to other targets, according to a report in the Express.

Matic is expected to leave the Premier League champions following the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco and he was left out of Chelsea’s pre-season tour squad to allow him to resolve his future.

The Serbian international has been strongly linked with both Man Utd and Juventus but the Mirror reported recently that the Red Devils moved in to pole position after the Serie A champions baulked at Chelsea’s £40m asking price.

The Express are now citing a report from Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio who claims Matic wants to join United is now on the verge of securing his moving to Old Trafford.

It’s stated in the newspaper that Juventus have conceded defeat in the race to sign Matic and have now turned their attention to landing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi instead.

Jose Mourinho has vented his frustration at United’s lack of movement in the transfer market as they’ve only managed to wrap-up deals to sign centre-back Victor Lindelof and striker Romelu Lukaku so far.

The Portuguese coach is looking to bring in a central midfielder to act as a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick and it seems Mourinho is on the verge of a reunion with Matic.

The ‘Special One’ re-signed the 28-year-old for Chelsea back in 2014 and he played a key role in helping them win the title that season so it seems Mourinho is hoping he’ll have the same affect in Manchester.

Mourinho seemingly believes Matic will be the perfect foil for Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in his United midfield this season and I think he’ll be an excellent addition if they manage to get this proposed deal over the line.

    What’s this nonsense discussion of Matic by Utd board. We do not need him…I’d go for Dier for a good fee or even the hardboy Renato Sanches
