Man United want to bring Chelsea star to Old Trafford – report

Manchester United want to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea this summer, say reports

Manchester United are keen to bring Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings as Jose Mourinho prepares for his first season in charge of the Red Devils.

Matic was a key cog in the Chelsea midfield as the Blues won the Premier League title under Mourinho in 2014-15, but like many of his team-mates endured a season to forget last term.

Nevertheless, Mourinho is thought to be a keen admirer of the Serbia international and wants to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.

The Daily Mail is reporting that it may be difficult for United to convince Chelsea to sell the player but the Red Devils are still hoping to push through a deal.
