According to (ManchesterEveningNews), Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.
Manchester United manager has also expressed his desire to reunite with former player Cesc Fabregas but Chelsea aren’t willing to let him go at the moment in time. Even though Cesc Fabregas hasn’t been playing a lot this season it may just be down to fitness. Antonio Conte may prefer to keep Cesc Fabregas and sell Nemanja Matic instead and Mourinho will be there to grab either of them.
It may seem as Manchester United don’t really need anymore central midfielders but in reality they do. They still haven’t replaced Paul Scholes. Pogba and Herrera, both super class players but they’re aren’t Scholes or a Scholes-type player. Fabregas would be the perfect replacement, but Nemanja Matic? He’s very defensive but he’s not that different to a Fellaini or a Schneiderlin which they already had and just sold
Cesc Fabregas will definitley be a better option for Manchester United, but Jose Mourinho seems to be keen on signing who ever is available and it’s more likely that Nemanja Matic will be the player that will leave Chelsea and join Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford
