Fee agreed! $51m-rated World class player agree Man United deal, Chelsea fans will be sad
Things have been relatively quiet and peaceful on the transfer front but we may be set for one of the most exciting week with several media outlet bracing the window to bring latest news.
According to Starsport, Manchester United are on the cusp of sealing a deal for Serbian international and Chelsea defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic.
After completing a deal for Sweden international Victor Lindelof, Jose Mourinho turned his attention to Matic and the Portuguese tactician needs the player as a matter of priority in his midfield.
Matic has already agreed personal terms to jump the ship to the Fortress of Old Trafford and GFN understands that a fee for his transfer has been agreed by Man United and Chelsea.
United had focused their attention on French star Tiemoue Bakayoko but the player may just be closing in on a move to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea. Bakayoko will be replacing Matic, who rejoined Chelsea from Benfica in the summer of 2014 under the watch of Mourinho.
The top Clubs of the League are likely to accelerate their business after the transfer window is officially opened on the 1st of July. Man United are expected to fork out as much as £40m ($51m) for the 28-year-old Matic and he will earn around £150,000-a-week at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been linked to Tottenham’s Eric Dier but Matic will add steel and dexterity to the midfield of United as he will come in as a long term replacement for Michael Carrick. Matic will be expected to sit back as the defensive midfielder of United while Pogba roams the length and breadth of the pitch in a free-role mode.
