Manchester United: Fans want James Garner to replace Nemanja Matic

Manchester United fans are asking for James Garner to replace veteran midfielder Nemanja Matic after reports surrounding a potential January exit for the Serbian.

Reportedly, Matic could be set to exit Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order, with the Serbia international starting just four of the club’s 11 games this season.

According to Correira Del Sport via Sport24, Serie A side Internazionale are thought to be interested in signing the defensive midfielder. The Italian side are reported to have prepared a three-year contract worth €5m (roughly £4.3m).

Garner has enjoyed a brilliant season across various age groups for the Old Trafford giants this campaign, scoring five goals and getting one assist in just six games in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).

After reports of a potential move for Matic in the winter window, fans asked for Garner to be introduced in his place as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
