Manchester United: Five Realistic Summer Transfer Targets

Nemanja Matic

Reports have emerged recently that Mourinho would be interested in signing this Chelsea star in hopes of sharpening up United’s midfield.

Matic is arguably one of the best defensive midfielders in the premier league. He provides great cover to the back four, passes the ball relatively well, and is a strong tackler who wins many of his battles. With Chelsea also welcoming in new manager Antonio Conte, Matic could be willing to explore opportunities elsewhere. United do already have a decent amount of players in his position but Mourinho could opt to turn to Matic instead of offering chances to Morgan Schneiderlin.

It would be a very interesting transfer if it were to happen, but the idea of Matic following Mourinho to United isn’t completely inconceivable.
