Manchester United are mainly linked with defensive midfielders after securing the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
The Red Devils need a top quality play breaker in the team who will most likely partner Herrera in the center of the park and once again Chelsea star Nemanja Matic is in the lime light.
Last month, The Guardian reported that the Serbian international has accepted terms with the Old Trafford club that will make him earn around £155,000-a-week ($200,000-a-week). The British source also stated that the clubs have agreed a price for him.
Mourinho hijacked Chelsea’s deal to sign Lukaku for United and that perhaps halted the progress of Matic’s move to Old Trafford.
According to Daily Mail, the Stamford Bridge club are close to hiring the services of French defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Monaco star will likely replace Matic in Conte’s starting XI next season and now the 28-year-old DM is ready to push through a move to Manchester United. Last month, Mail reported that the former Benfica star would cost around 40 million pounds ($52million).
Nemanja rose to fame in the Premier League under the management of Mourinho. He played a key role in Chelsea’s title winning 2014-15 campaign under Jose. Can he help Manchester United win the title as well?
