The transfer market is a bizarre world of football that could leave you startled as events unfold. The reported interest in Nemanja Matic from Manchester United is another subplot to this summer’s transfer market. On 18 August 2009, Matić signed for Chelsea from MFK Košice for a fee of around £1.5 million on a four- year contract. Though he left Chelsea for Benfica in 2010 in deal that brought Brazilian defender, David Luiz to the club. In 2014, he was later resigned by then blues boss, Jose Mourinho for £21m. His performances so far has been near-perfect.

The Serbian has been an integral part of the Chelsea since his return to the club in 2014. He equally played a vital role in our two title successes in the last three years. He was regarded as one of the best midfielders in the premier league in 2014/15 season as Chelsea romped to the title in spectacular fashion, but a slump in form in our disastrous 2015/16 season saw questions being asked of his quality. Often criticised for being too pedestrian in play and lacking cutting edge to his game. But should Chelsea really him to Manchester United and José Mourinho? Here are the pros and cons:

 

PROS:

The sale of Magic to United will bring a healthy profit which Chelsea can use to pursue Conte’s other transfer targets. Besides the imminent purchase of Bakayako presents a replacement for the departing Serbian. For a player who is 28, this could be Chelsea’s last chance to get a good deal from his sale.

 

CONS:

Chelsea’s sale of Matic to United would mean strengthening a rival with a key play. The club would be solving United midfield reinforcement problem. More so, at 28, Matic should be in his prime where he will be at the peak of his powers and who knows, he might just be the player to stop Chelsea from winning the league next season.

 

Let’s also comment what we think on this issue…cheers!
