Nemanja Matic to Man Utd: Chelsea could regret selling star - Mario Melchiot

Matic is set to become United's next summer signing this week and will arrive at Old Trafford for a fee of £35m.

Mourinho has identified the Croatia global as a top summer target and the 28-year-old is keen on a move to at Old Trafford.

Matic played for Mourinho at Chelsea for two years, winning the 2014-15 title together, although the Portuguese was highly critical of Matic in his final few months at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is lining up a transfer approach for AS Monaco's Fabinho despite the club being close to a transfer agreement for Chelsea's Nemanja Matic.

"He was very crucial in some games Chelsea played last season and I think he did extremely well, even if he wasn't starting every game", he told talkSPORT.

The United manager wants to improve his squad further with the Brazilian offering him options in midfield and at right-back.

"If he [Conte] makes the choice to let him go to Man United, he better have good backing because, if not, it might come back and bite you later".

The Serbia global is due to link up from Chelsea for £35m later this week, provided the Blues wrap up the services of Fabinho's teammate Tiemoue Bakayoko.
