Chelsea fans have had their say on Twitter after reports emerged claiming that Nemanja Matic is closing in on a move to Manchester United.
The rumour has been rumbling for some time, but now, according to the Manchester Evening News, the midfielder has verbally agreed personal terms with the Red Devils.
It is believed that the Serbian is keen to play under manager Jose Mourinho once again, but a fee has not yet been agreed between the two clubs.
Matic is likely to have struggled for regular first-team action at Chelsea next season due to the club’s rumoured pursuit of Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Daily Mail has claimed that the Blues have agreed to pay £35.2m to the Ligue 1 club for Bakayoko’s services, which could speed up Matic’s switch to Old Trafford.
The latest development regarding Matic’s possible move to a Chelsea rival has got the fans talking, and many are happy to see him go.
Nemenja Matic to Man United? Conte gradually getting rid of the deadwoods at #cfc. Elite.

But with Matic maybe joining Man United, Chalobah may get his chance alongside Bakayoko and Kante #CFC

I'd be overjoyed if Matic actually gets sold by #CFC this summer. He's done enough. Bakayoko obviously a better option

Hope we don't let United sign Matic without any substantial offer, can't let a rival especially United and Jose get off easy! #CFC

If United are willing to pay £25m for Matic, #CFC would be very wise to accept. Never returned to 2014/15 form.

If true, Matic to Man Utd is a dreadful move. Surely we need depth to the squad, especially those with CL experience. #CFC
