Reports have surfaced suggesting that not only is Jose Mourinho keen on bringing Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford but the Serbian has ‘agreed personal terms’ to join the club.
The departure of the central midfielder from last season’s champions makes sense amidst rumours outlining Chelsea are on the edge of completing a 35-million-pound deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Even with Matic seemingly being surplus to demand, Conte won’t let him go cheap with an asking price is around 40 million pounds.
Having already signed Victor Lindelof from Benfica and being rumored to be in the market for the likes of Jordi Alba it’s clear Jose wants to secure his back line.
A pairing of Herrera and Matic in the heart of Manchester United midfield could help do just that. With this strong core, players such as Pogba could be given more freedom to go forward and support the team in the final third.
Although 40 million is a relatively high asking price, his contribution to Chelsea’s title success has been undeniable and he would be an asset to Mourinho’s side.
