The potential opportunity to receive €45 million for Nemanja Matic is exciting Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
While the enforcer has been an integral part of the club’s two victorious Premier League campaigns over the past three seasons, new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko looks destined to take his place in the heart of the Blues’ midfield so cashing in on Matic seems like a no-brainer to fans in the Tavern.
Corriere dello Sport are reporting that both Juventus and Manchester United are interested in signing the player but the Premier League outfit look to be favourites right now with Juve not keen on the high valuation.
The Serbian international was omitted from Chelsea’s pre-season squad suggesting that his departure is highly likely.
Corriere dello Sport are also reporting that Juve’s director of football Fabio Paratici met with Chelsea earlier this week a deal could not be made, paving the way for Manchester United to swoop in.
Jose Mourinho is known admirer of the midfielder having signed him twice already in his managerial career so to see him put on the United shirt next season wouldn’t come as a surprise.
What do you think, United fans? Would Matic be a good partner alongside Paul Pogba in midfield or are there better options?
