Manchester United are set to close a deal for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the coming days.

The Daily Mail says United will look to complete the £40million transfer of Matic from Chelsea this week.

Chelsea have consented to allow the 28-year-old to join their Premier League rivals but manager Antonio Conte ideally wants to bring in another midfielder before the transfer is signed off.

Matic was left behind from Chelsea’s pre-season tour to the Far East and made it clear that he wished to leave the club.

Though Juventus expressed interest, they were unwilling to match the financial package plus the length of contract that Matic sought. Instead, he will be reunited with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who tried to sign Matic last season.
