MANCHESTER UNITED are pursuing their interest in Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in a host of fresh talent in the transfer window and Express Sport understands the Portuguese is being handed £200million to spend.
The 53-year-old has been linked with trying to raid his former club Chelsea in recent months.
And according to Italian publication GianlucaDiMarzio , Matic is at the forefront of his plans.
Matic was a key part of Chelsea ‘s title-winning campaign in the 2014/15 season but struggled to maintain a regular starting spot under Guus Hiddink last season.
The 27-year-old is currently under contract with the west London outfit until 2019 and the Blues are unlikely to want to part with him on the cheap.
The report claims United have already made contact with
Chelsea to sound out the midfielder’s availability
