The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving all of this talk regarding the prospect of an arrival for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic…
According to the Telegraph, Man Utd are said to be confident that they will be able to secure a deal for Matic this summer, with the player himself, significantly, refusing to sign a new contract at Chelsea at present.
Despite the fact that Matic is approaching 29-years-old, this deal makes a lot of sense for Man Utd. Matic is player that is in his prime, and he was crucial for Chelsea en route to their Premier League title success last season. A defensive marvel, he will allow the likes of Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera to focus on what they do best going forward, immediately making the Red Devils a far stronger side.
The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are fairly happy for this deal to go ahead, with many touting reportedly impending signing Tiemoue Bakayoko as a superior midfielder to the Serb.
Our landlord thinks that this deal works out for all parties, and he is expecting it to get done sooner rather than later.
