Nemanja Matic is thought to have felt surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

Speculation amongst Man United fans has intensified regarding a new player gracing their club after a snap of Nemanja Matic has surfaced online. The picture with the caption in Serbian translating to, “First-hand information” shows the player in question wearing a Man United training top. The number on the top, 31 has only helped fuel speculation as Bastian Schweinsteiger vacated it after leaving for the MLS and Chicago Fire.

The move which would reunite the player and manager who lifted the 2015 Premier League title together is rumoured to amount to £40m.

Matic has rumoured to have wanted a move away from Stamford Bridge after the signing of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. With Kante being one of the first names on the team sheet, Matic has felt surplus to requirements at Chelsea. With Juventus among many European clubs showing interest in the 28 year old Serbian, it is thought that staying in England and working with Mourinho again could not be resisted on Matic’s part.
