Nemanja Matic could exert interest from Manchester United to leverage for a new Chelsea deal, according to reports from Goal.
The midfielder was brought to Stamford Bridge by present Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, and he is widely understood to be determined on partnering him with Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Matic’s own position at Chelsea is about to come under threat from imminent new arrival Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is close to finishing his move from Monaco.
However, Matic is reckoned to be happy in London, and with Chelsea unsurprisingly not keen to sell to a potential Premier League title rival, meaning he may well secure a new contract out of the stand-off.
Serie A champions Juventus were also displaying interest, but instead, they have focused their attention to former Stoke and Blackburn midfielder Steven N’Zonzi.
