Could Matic make Man United move — Transfer Focus

The reports also say the Serbian has already agreed personal terms with the Red Devils and is keen on a reunion with Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was keen to sign Matić during his first summer in charge of Manchester United.

The M.E.N. claimed last week that Mourinho had targeted Matic as the holding midfielder he wanted to allow Paul Pogba to play a more attacking role next season.

United have allowed Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger to depart this year, allowing room for another midfield addition in their squad.

Now there is a feeling that Conte could be prepared to cash in on in order to reinvest the money on a younger recruit.

Mourinho needs to find a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick and Matic could prove to be the ideal foil alongside Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba next season.

Mourinho hinted last week that he would have difficulty purchasing talent from his rivals, but failed to mention the Blues.

Foot Mercato claim that the Premier League champions are in pole position to sign the France global ahead of Manchester United and Liverpool, and the 22-year-old will personally speak with the Chelsea manager before completing his transfer to Stamford Bridge. The scenery has changed.

"That was not the case before".

This could well be a ploy by Chelsea to bring in suitors for Matic.

It seems increasingly likely that Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon will be moving this summer and The Express says that it's now a two-way bun fight for his services between Tottenham and Liverpool.

Matic left Chelsea in 2011, moving to Benfica to gain more game time.
