Chelsea Star has agreed personal terms with Manchester United


Nemanja Matic has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and the clubs have also reportedly agreed to a fee according to The Guardian. This news comes completely as a surprise to many as no major outlets were reporting any links between Matic and United. It is also surprising that Antonio Conte has let a rival take his first choice player. Although Chelsea fans will be relieved that the Bakayoko to Chelsea deal is set to be confirmed.

Matic would be perfect for United as they have been missing a strong defensive midfielder since the days of Owen Hargreaves. United were strongly linked to Fabinho of Monaco but the Matic news will be a pleasant surpise to all United fans. A midfield three of Matic-Pogba-Herrera has the potential to dominate Europe. Matic in midfield will also allow Pogba more freedom in the final third.

Pogba’s best position is as the most advanced player in a 3 man midfield. Last year, United suffered at times because of Pogba’s defensive weaknesses especially against Manchester City at Old Trafford in the Premier League. With Matic and Herrera playing as the double pivot, Pogba can be a major influence in the final third. It is clear that Mourinho wants to build his team around Pogba and his system next year will be set up in a way to get the best out of the Frenchman.
