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-old 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…
