The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are very excited indeed…
With a deal for Victor Lindelof already confirmed, they are waiting for the floodgates to open at Old Trafford. With a Europa League final victory sealing a spot in the Champions League next season, it is a very exciting time to be a Man Utd fan – and many are expecting some big signings to facilitate the Red Devils’ return to Europe’s primary competition.
Improvements are needed up and down the Man Utd first team, and the midfield is certainly included in that discussion. Whilst Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera will be standout figures next season, our landlord thinks that a third member is needded – and according to the Guardian, Mourinho may have found it.
As noted in the Guardian, the Red Devils are close to sealing a deal for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, who looks set to leave the Blues this summer.
A Mourinho favourite, Matic was signed by the Portuguese whilst he was still in charge of Chelsea, and he was a key part of proceedings during his tenure.
The Man Utd fans on Twitter are expecting the Serbian to have a similar impact at Old Trafford, with many taking to the site to react in delight to the news…

Our defence was good last season and with lindelof and matic it’ll be water tight! Still need a couple of goal scorers though #mufc

Why would you not want Matic!! Instrumental in Chelsea's 2 league titles in 3 years. Jose fully trusts him. The transfer makes sense #MUFC

delighted if we got Matic, big, strong, can pass, tackle, odd goal, a load of title & European experience. Everything Fellaini doesn't #mufc

Matic deep with Pogba and Herrera ahead of him sounds decent in my opinion.. ive had to watch Fellaini try. Matic miles better lol #mufc

I'll welcome Matic signing although if it's £40m that's ridiculous but then again most premiership signings are crazy fees now #MUFC

Excellent if we can get Both Matic and Fabinho. #mufc
