Gary Neville claims Nemanja Matic would 'fit the bill' at Manchester United

However Romelu Lukaku's move to Old Trafford has scuppered any potential deal

However Romelu Lukaku's move to Old Trafford has scuppered any potential deal

Is this how Manchester United will line up next season with Nemanja Matic?

Luciano Spalletti seems to put one over on United out of the fallout and has entered the race for Nemanja Matic who is valued at £35million.

Inter Milan were linked with AS Roma star Radja Nainggolan but with Belgian midfielder set to remain at Giallorossi Inter Milan have reportedly set their sights on Matic.

Neville is, however, of the opinion that United need more cover and feels Matic, as a proven Premier League performer, would tick all of the boxes.

Bakayoko will become Chelsea's third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger.

Mourinho helped the Serbian to establish himself as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League as Chelsea won the Premier League title in 2015.

As per the Telegraph, Matic has been training on his own at Cobham, supposedly due to a minor injury problem, which may have slowed up his exit from the club.

Following the intense drama of the Romelu Lukaku hijacking, the repercussions heading Manchester United's way are just starting to unfold.

Chelsea have been in talks with Matic for 18 months about extending his contract, which does not look likely to happen.

However, former United defender Neville believes Matic could be a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick at Old Trafford if a deal could be done.

The Blues had been stalling the deal for quite a while now, in the expectation that Timoue Bakayoko will join them from AS Monaco.
