Recent reports seem to suggest that Chelsea midfielder and one of Antonio Conte’s key men for last season Nemanja Matic, might be on his way out of Stamford Bridge, with rumours suggesting he could join Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
According to reports, Conte is keen on seeing the deal happen so he can persuade Cesc Fabregas not to make a transfer away from Stamford Bridge.
With Tiemoue Bakayako coming to join Chelsea ahead of next season, competition will be fierce for places in the Chelsea midfield.
Cesc Fabregas played second fiddle to Matic for most of the campaign, but his influence in the team was strongly felt as he made some impact from the bench and in the games he started.
With Conte not keen on losing Fabregas who brings a different kind of balance to the team, Matic might just be the one to be sacrificed.
