Jose Mourinho is planning to raid his former club Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
The Portuguese manager is looking to sign the Chelsea defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic for Manchester United.
Mourinho re-signed the Serbian at Chelsea from Benfica and the midfielder was key to Chelsea’s title win last season (2014/15).
Matic has had a poor season at Chelsea this year and has been linked with a move away. It seems that Jose wants a reunion with his former player at Old Trafford.
Despite having Schneiderlin, Manchester United definitely need more defensive cover in the midfield and Matic would be ideal. On form, he is one of the best in his position in Europe.
According to Daily Mail, Manchester United might have to pay around 20 million pounds for the Chelsea star. Judging by the player’s potential and the current transfer inflation, that is major bargain if it comes off.
Chelsea have been linked with the Leicester City defensive midfielder, N’golo Kante, this summer and it seems that he could be the replacement for Matic if Mourinho gets his way.
The incoming Manchester United manager is also looking to hijack Conte’s move for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.
