The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are still expecting a couple of players to move to Old Trafford this summer…
Jose Mourinho has revealed himself that he is hoping for at least two new signings, with the Portuguese manager seemingly not content despite landing highly sought-after forward Romelu Lukaku this summer.
It appears as though one player that the Red Devils are hopeful of signing is Nemanja Matic, and Gianluca Di Marzio’s latest update on the matter will likely please the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern. Di Marzio reports that Man Utd are leading Juventus in the race for the Chelsea midfielder – with the Italian giants now considering other options as a result.
Whilst no more information is provided, it appears safe to assume that Man Utd have yet to give up on the move, and given that Nemanja Matic hasn’t gone on tour this summer, a departure looks almost inevitable. This update makes it seem as though a move to Old Trafford could be on the cards.
There is no doubting that Matic would be a top signing for the Red Devils. With Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in the side, Man Utd are an excellent attacking outfit, but they lack that defensive bite that Matic offers.
Alongside N’Golo Kante, he was unstoppable last season – and he could have a similar effect in the Red Devils’ midfield.
Given his absence from Chelsea’s pre-season squad, a sale looks likely this summer, and so a move could well be on the cards.
