HYS: Should Man United swoop for Nemanja Matic?

According to reports from Manchester Evening News, Jose Mourinho wants to bring powerful Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

The Old Trafford boss re-signed the Serbian international for the Blues in January 2014 and he’s gone on to make nearly 150 appearances for the west London outfit, playing a crucial role in two Premier League titles during that time.

But Matic hasn’t been an automatic starter during the latter stages of the 2016/17 campaign, with Cesc Fabregas coming in to inject some natural creativity into Chelsea’s two-man midfield.

And Mourinho is now eyeing the 28-year-oldĀ as a potential successor to Michael Carrick at the base of United’s engine room, believing a defensive midfielder can bring the best out of world-record signing Paul Pogba.

So, Red Devils fans, is Matic the ideal addition to United’s midfield or should Mourinho be shopping elsewhere this summer? Let us know by voting below…
