Manchester United To Complete £50m Transfer For Star From Premier League Rivals on Monday?
Manchester United are reportedly close to completing a R854 million deal for a star from one of the club's biggest Premier League rivals.
The Red Devils have already signed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku in this window, but Jose Mourinho wants more faces to arrive at Old Trafford.
According to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic arrived for a medical at United on Sunday, after the clubs agreed a £50 million (R854 million) move.
Mourinho himself did not confirm the deal, but did say the Serbian wants to join his side.
"I'm waiting for news. I know that he wants the move very, very much," the Portuguese tactician said, according to the abovementioned English publication.
"I think we have a chance, but in football until things are official, you never know."
On Sunday, an image of Matic in United's training kit did the rounds on social media, but Mourinho, who saw his side beat Valerenga 3-0, did not want to confirm the authenticity of the picture.
"No. 31 is a free jersey, I don't know if he was there as I haven't been there today," he added.
Matic has made 154 appearances for Chelsea so far, lifting five trophies along the way.
