Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are reacting angrily to reports that a star player wants to leave the club, as they fear the start of a mass exodus.
The Sun states that Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic is keen to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and follow former boss Jose Mourinho to Manchester United, after the Portuguese boss’ appointment last month.
Mourinho brought Matic back to Chelsea during his second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge and wants a reunion with the 27-year-old this summer, as it’s unclear where Matic fits into Antonio Conte’s plans for a new look Blues side next season.
Matic was a key part of Chelsea’s Premier League win in 2015 but struggled to continue that form into last season, as the Serbian was one of the poorest performers during an awful campaign for the west London side- with Mourinho losing his job midway through the campaign.
Our landlord believes Conte won’t stand in the way of Matic’s plans and expects this transfer to go ahead in the coming months.
Chelsea fans, would you be upset to see Matic move to United? Let us know in the comments below!
