Nemanja Matic demands talks with Man Utd as ‘world-class’ midfielder transfer target


Nemanja Matic is planning talks with Manchester United bosses over his future at Old Trafford.

Matic has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot this season and could decide to leave United this summer.

The Serbia international has started just four games since Ralf Rangnick became caretaker boss at the end of November.

Matic, 33, is struggling to overcome a shin problem and hasn’t played for United since the winter break.

He signed a new contract with United in 2020 which runs until the end of next season.

But he knows United’s new CEO Richard Arnold is keen to sign a world-class midfielder in the next transfer window, which would see him fall further down the pecking order.

Matic also knows Rangnick won’t be in charge at the start of next season when the German is expected to take on a new role at the club.

This has left Matic facing an uncertain future and he wants to know if he is still part of the club’s plans moving forward.

He will turn 34 before the start of next season and United could decide to sell him if a reasonable offer is made, instead of seeing him go for nothing 12 months later.

Matic joined United from Chelsea in 2017 for £40m when Jose Mourinho was boss and made 118 league appearances.
