Juventus target Matic would be prepared to leave Chelsea for Man Utd

Nemanja Matic would consider a summer move to Manchester United if Jose Mourinho were to replace Louis van Gaal.

According to the Daily Mail, the Serbian midfielder is eyeing the Chelsea exit door ahead of the end-of-season transfer window and is reportedly open to a reunion with Mourinho who wants him at Old Trafford provided he takes the reins from van Gaal.

Italian champions Juventus are showing significant interest in Matic but the 27-year-old would prefer to stay in the Premier League and is waiting to see what happens with the Mourinho to Man United situation.

Chelsea are likely to demand a hefty transfer fee from domestic rivals United if Matic opts to move to Manchester and it is understood that the West London club would rather negotiate with Juventus with the hope of luring Paul Pogba from Turin.
