Incoming Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to take Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic with him to Old Trafford, as he looks to spend the £200 million kitty which he will be handed upon his arrival at the club.
According to an article in the landlord’s copy of The Daily Mail, the Chelsea lynchpin is high on the Portuguese boss’ list of priorities with the new boss keen to bolster the spine of the Manchester United team.
Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are incensed and claim that if Mourinho had as much love for the Blues as he once claimed, then he wouldn’t be trying to poach their players so early into his United tenure.
The Serbian midfielder fell down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge during last season and could leave the club in the summer if a bid in excess of £25 million is made by any potential suitors.
