Benfica in Chelsea talks over Matic, Markovic double sale

Benfica are willing to sell Lazar Markovic and Nemanja Matic to Chelsea. The Mirror says the cash-strapped club have put a £12million price tag on Serbian winger Markovic, 19, and claim they are in discussions with Jose Mourinho's side about a January switch.

Portuguese media are also reporting that Chelsea are interested in re-signing Matic who moved to Benfica as part of the David Luiz deal in 2011.

Manchester United have also been tracking Matic, 25, who is available for around £20m following Benfica's exit from the Champions League.

Markovic is seen as one of Benfica's best prospects and could be left on loan in Portugal until the end of the season.
