Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United this summer.
The 28-year-old wants to leave Chelsea following the arrival of 22-year-old Tiemoue Bakayoko and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly consented to allow Matic join Manchester United even though they are one of Chelsea’s title rivals.
Matic was left out of Chelsea’s preseason tour of Asia after he reportedly expressed his desire to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to Daily Mail, Manchester United would look to complete the £40 million transfer of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea this week.
The report also claims Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants to bring in another midfielder before the transfer is signed off.
Juventus were reportedly linked with the midfielder but they pulled out of the race for Matic because they were reportedly unwilling to match the financial package plus the length of contract that Matic wants.
