Man Utd could launch surprise summer move to link up with Mourinho-favourite

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see a few players with proven pedigree join the club this summer…

Their manager is seemingly in agreement, and if Jose Mourinho gets his wish, he could link up with a former champion of his – with Manchester Evening News reporting that the Red Devils are considering making a move for Chelsea ace Nemanja Matic, who has for the Blues impressed this season.

Matic was, of course, a crucial member of Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea side when the Portuguese was in charge – combining with Cesc Fabregas to create arguably the Premier League’s finest midfield duo.

Following a fine 18 months in London, the Serbian went off the boil somewhat – but under Antonio Conte he has found the fine form that made him so deadly earlier in his tenure once again. This time alongside N’Golo Kante for Chelsea, the duo have been the spine of a Chelsea side that has now won the Premier League title.

For Man Utd’s part, a bit of defensive steel is needed this summer – with the Red Devils struggling defensively this season. With Michael Carrick reaching the twilight of his career, clearly Jose Mourinho is thinking ahead.
