It’s getting hectic around Manchester at the moment.
Manchester City have unveiled Pep Guardiola who has acted swiftly to bring in Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito, Aaron Mooy and Oleksandr Zinchenko to the club.
Meanwhile over in the red half of the city Jose Mourinho has signed Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan as the two rivals prepare to go head to head in one of the most eagerly awaited Premier League seasons for many years.
And whilst it’s not confirmed Matuidi has spoken to United it’s been assumed because of one man – Mino Raiola.
Raiola is the agent of Matuidi, Pogba, Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic and it begs the question: should Manchester United be letting one man apparently have such an influence on the club? It’s certainly got Twitter talking anyway, here are some of the reactions to Raiola’s latest dealings…

Matuidi travels to Manchester. Agent: Mino Raiola of course. What a coup for the agent this summer. Zlatan, Mkhitaryan and now Matuidi.

First it was Ibrahimović, then it was Mkhitaryan, I'm sure there's another Mino Raiola client Man Utd can clinch to make it a hat-trick.
