Manchester Uniteds Transfer News: Manchester United Reportedly Reach Verbal Agreement Over Personal Terms With Chelsea Star Nemanja Matic this summer.
Manchester Uniteds Transfer News they have reportedly agreed personal terms with Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic over transfer summer.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Nemanja Matic has verbally agreed a deal to move to Old Trafford and reunite with Jose Mourinho at United.
Both clubs still need to agree a fee to follow over transfer.
Nemanja Matic is set to be replaced at Chelsea with the arrival of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for around £35m this week.
Manchester Uniteds Transfer News they have often been linked with the Serbian international, who formed a key part of Mourinho’s 2014/15 Chelsea title winning team, ever since the Portuguese coach first arrived in Manchester United last year.
Manchester Uniteds Transfer News it was claimed earlier this week that Chelsea’s progress in their pursuit of Monaco talent Tiemoue Bakayoko could prompt a Matic exit from Blues, and an update from the Manchester Evening News has since suggested that he has indicated he would accept an offer from Manchester United this summer.
According to the local newspaper, all that would need to be agreed is a formal transfer fee with Blues. Direct rivals rarely do business with each other, but there is at least some precedent here after the west Londoners were willing to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United in January 2014.
It remains to be seen how the alleged agreement with Matic ties into Reds strongly rumoured interest in Monaco’s Fabinho. The Brazilian is said to be the subject of a €35m agreement between Reds and the new French champions, and has even personally commented on the ‘tempting’ opportunity.
Manchester Uniteds Transfer News It seems unlikely that Manchester United will buy both players, with Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini already for central midfield places next season.
Speculatively, one could perhaps suggest that Mourinho and the United hierarchy may work on both deals to a point of near completion before deciding which is a better fit for their needs.
