Chelsea star tells Jose Mourinho he wants to join him at Man United – report

Nemanja Matic is pushing to leave Chelsea and join Manchester United this summer, say reports

Nemanja Matic is pushing to seal a transfer to Manchester United from Chelsea this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are believed to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager last month.

Chelsea midfielder Matic has been touted as a transfer target for the Red Devils since Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford, despite the Serbia international struggling for form last season.

Now, The Sun is reporting that Matic has told incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge to join the Red Devils this summer.

The same report goes on to say that Matic and Mourinho have a good relationship despite the pair having been reported to have fallen out last season before the manager’s sacking by Chelsea.

Matic played a key role in helping Chelsea win the title in 2014-15 but was one of the club’s biggest under-performers before Mourinho was sacked back in December.
