It was reported by Sky Sports on Sunday afternoon that Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is on the verge of joining Manchester United.

The Serb rejoined Chelsea in the winter of 2014, immediately establishing himself as a cornerstone in Jose Mourinho’s midfield, and one of the best midfielders in the Premier League in doing so.

Fast forward 18 months and Matic had his hands on the Premier League title, forming a diamond encrusted midfield pairing with Cesc Fabregas.

The reality is, however, that Matic has not been the same player since. He seems to have lost all of his tactical discipline, and could be accused of floating in and out of games.

Question marks can be raised over his concentration and work ethic. To summarise, he is a shadow of his former self.

That may well explain the reaction of Chelsea fans on Twitter when Sky Sports’ report was published. Very few seemed to care at all about Matic’s departure, even to a direct rival. Take a look at these.

I hate his one leggedness, slow pace and inability to use his height well.
