Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is close to joining Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.

Sky Sports report that the deal to take Matic to Old Trafford could be completed in the coming days, with the Serb set to reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho.

As per Sky Sports, Chelsea will receive a fee in the region of £40M for Matic, which looks to be good business for a 29-year-old who has looked a shadow of his former self over the past 18 months.

It is mentioned in the report that Juventus were also in the running to sign Matic, but they have now accepted defeat in their pursuit of the Chelsea midfielder.

Sky Sports claim that Chelsea would have preferred to sell Matic to a foreign club, but the player’s desire to join Man United saw the move materialise.

It will certainly be strange seeing Matic in a Man United shirt, but after the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS Monaco, we have already replaced him.
