Antonio Conte replies when asked if Man United are signing Nemanja Matic
Antonio Conte insists that he doesn't know whether Nemanja Matic will sign for Manchester United from Chelsea this summer
Antonio Conte gave nothing away when asked whether Manchester United are set to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea this summer.
The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his midfield options ahead of his second campaign in charge.
Matic’s future has been thrown further into doubt after Chelsea moved to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco to beef up their squad and add further competition in midfield.
There is yet to be any official comment from either club on Matic’s situation and Conte preferred to dodge the question when asked directly about the Serb’s future over the weekend.
Asked about whether Matic could leave Chelsea to sign for Manchester United, Conte is quoted as saying by Metro: “I don’t know nothing about this. You have to ask the club.”
Chelsea are preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after their title triumph last term.
The Red Devils are also gearing up for a return to Europe’s elite club competition after Mourinho led them to Europa League glory last term.
