With a deal for French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako imminent, Nemanja Matic’s shirt at Chelsea seems unsure and reports now claim that the Serbian could join former boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The Times report Conte is set to sanction Matic’s move to Manchester United in order to accommodate Bakayoko whose deal might be announced on July 1st.
Jose Mourinho has long been interested in a reunion with Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic whom he managed during his second spell at Chelsea, and this might be his opportunity.
Chelsea will be left with four central midfielders ahead of the new season – N’Golo Kante, Nathaniel Chalobah, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayako.
Personally, I don’t think it will be a good move to sell Matic to a rival club. If he must leave Chelsea it should be abroad.
