"He is closer to Manchester United" - Transfer market expert says Premier League star will move to Old Trafford


Transfer market expert Gianluca di Marzio says Nemanja Matic is very close to making a move to Old Trafford.

The Italian was answering questions about the transfer business of Juventus who are also interested in the 28-year-old.

But it seems the player wants to join Manchester United in order to work with former boss Jose Mourinho.

Meanwhile, club legend Gary Pallister believes the Serbian would be a great signing for the club.

"Matic is a physical presence and apart from [Marouane] Fellaini we have quite a small midfield," Pallister told 888sport.

"When we looked at United last season we lacked that presence and Matic will certainly bring that.

"He's an excellent player though and it would be a surprise if Chelsea were prepared to let him go."
