Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were left stunned today after they heard one of their stars could leave to join a Premier League rival, which has got sections of the supporters really agitated.
The Daily Mail says Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic is considering his future at Chelsea, which is not a surprise considering his poor displays this season, but he could end up moving across England.
Per the reports, Matic is keen to stay in the Premier League and will consider a move to Manchester United, if former Blues boss Jose Mourinho replaces Louis Van Gaal at Old Trafford during the course of the summer.
The 27-year-old excelled in the Premier League last season, as Chelsea won the title under Mourinho, but he’s struggled to replicate that form and is likely to find himself outside of new boss Antonio Conte’s plans for the west London giants.
However, our landlord doesn’t believe this transfer will come about as he feels Chelsea will demand a staggering fee for the player, simply because they don’t want to see him line-up for a rival.
Chelsea fans, would you sell Matic to Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below!
