Manchester United agree £40m deal with Chelsea over transfer of Nemanja Matic

According to Goal, the two clubs have come to an agreement for a deal worth around £40m, allowing Matic to link up with Jose Mourinho for a second time and the midfielder is due to undergo a medical by Wednesday.

The Serbia international was previously snapped up by the United boss when he was in charge at Stamford Bridge in January 2014.

The 28-year-old was a part of the Chelsea side which won the Premier League title with the Portuguese in 2015, then played a role in their repeat success in 2017 under Antonio Conte.

If he comes through his medical, Matic is expected to pen a deal worth well in excess of his current £90,000 weekly salary in west London. 

He will become United’s second signing of the summer following central defender Victor Lindelof’s arrival from Benfica for an initial £31m.
