Jose Mourinho to use Man United star to sign £35m Chelsea midfielder – report

Jose Mourinho will offer Matteo Darmian in attempt to sign Nemanja Matic this summer, according to Daily Star

Jose Mourinho is set to offer Matteo Darmian to Chelsea in an attempt to sign Nemanja Matic this summer, according to Daily Star.

The Red Devils manager has been linked with a number of Chelsea players since the ex-Blues boss took over the reins at Old Trafford last month.

The latest Chelsea star to be touted as a potential target for the 20-time English champions is Serbia midfielder Matic.

The 27-year-old sealed a return to Stamford Bridge under Mourinho after the defensive midfielder completed a £25m switch from Benfica in January 2014.

According to Daily Star, Mourinho is prepared to offer Italy defender Matteo Darmian as a makeweight in a potential deal to secure Matic’s signing.

The Italian right-back of the year moved to the Red Devils in a £12.5m deal from Torino last summer under Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal.
