Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Magic wants to complete a move to Manchester United, according to reports.
Manchester United first showed an interest in signing the Serbian midfielder twelve months ago as Jose Mourinho took over at the club. A move was not forthcoming back then but could be on the cards this summer.
Mourinho is believed to be in the market to sign four players this summer, including a combative defensive midfielder. Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier is one of the club’s top targets, but they believe that it could be hard to prise the England midfielder away from North London.
This difficulty in signing Dier could lead Manchester United moving on to other targets on the list that Jose Mourinho has left for Ed Woodward. The Manchester Evening News claim that Matic is once again on the list of players being targeted, and now the player wants a reunion with the former Chelsea boss.
Matic left Chelsea in 2011, moving to Benfica to gain more game time. However, in the summer of 2014, Mourinho brought Matic back to the Premier League, and the pair won the League in their first full season back at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been linked with a move for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, meaning Matic’s game time could be restricted if he were to stay in West London beyond the summer.
