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.

Do you think Matic would be a good signing for United? Have your say in the comments section below.

eish this supposed signing im doubting it, I dont see Matic making a huge difference at Man United, yes on marking our opponents closing their moves is good but sometimes is a little bit slow and being on the right space
