Benfica midfielder Matic warming to Chelsea return

The future of Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic could be decided this weekend. Former club Chelsea are keen, where manager Jose Mourinho has admitted admiration for the Serb.

The Daily Mail says Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been approached about Matic with each club different in their perception of what level he is at.

The 26-year-old is still understood to be uncomfortable about how Chelsea initially sold him as part of the David Luiz transfer without giving him a chance to develop but accepts the opportunity he has had at Benfica may not have been open initially at Stamford Bridge.

His representatives have a good relationship with Roman Abramovich as do Chelsea with Benfica and that could help convince him to give London another try.
