Deal Close – Manchester United to Sign $51million Star – He’ll Earn $198,000-a-week

Manchester United are seriously looking for a top quality defensive midfielder and it looks highly likely that Chelsea star Nemanja Matic will move to Old Trafford this summer.

Few days back, we covered a report (via The Times) claiming that Conte is prepared to sell the Serbian international to the Red Devils.

Now, as per the latest reports going on in the media, United are close (ESPN) to signing the star, who would cost around 40 million pounds ($51million). Daily Mail have mentioned the same figure as well and claim that the Blues are not prepared to let him leave for cheap.

The Guardian have stated that United are set to sign the 28-year-old star for around 40 million pounds, he has agreed personal terms with the club and will earn around £155,000-a-week ($198,000-a-week).

Since rejoining the Blues from Benfica, Matic has been one of the best holding midfield stars in the Premier League. He provided a solid cover in front of the back line and helped Chelsea win the title in 2014/15 when Mourinho was in charge of the club.

Moreover, the former Primeira Liga star was also influential in the last campaign under the management of Antonio Conte. He scored 2 goals and provided 9 assists for the Stamford Bridge club last season..

If Matic does move to the Old Trafford club, we can expect him to start in the center of the park with either Ander Herrera or record signing Paul Pogba.

      Actually Fabinho will be the perfect singing for us.. Because he is young and is also a utility player…. We should sing him… Also Morata,Talisca,James and Ivan….

    that’s nah good deal at all , fabinho is 23 m has much energy and I like his credibility , he can play as a full back n has an eye for goal and provides more cover and assists .you have to understand that amount is just Too much for that man , €10 would be better but fabinho young talent €35 but opted for this called matic.

  4. Emmy says:

    Please ensure Fabinho is also signed. Come to talk of defensive midfielder why not pay for Dier ,the money is there why not spend it?,time is running out.

    Throw money at the window for matic
    If it realise Chelsea makes a good deal of the century
    WHY MATIC 28 yrs old for that price is TOOOOO EXPENSIVE

  6. nabee hossen noorally says:

    Please buy Fabinho

  7. Nathaniel Hodge says:

    Adding Fabindo to the squad will be a good one too, because he will be able to help on the right side of the defence. I beg u Jose please insure that he be sign this season, and please do not for get to sign Andere Belotti from Torino.
