Man Utd prepare bid for Benfica powerhouse Matic

Manchester United are preparing a move for Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic. The Mirror says Benfica have slapped a £20million price tag on Manchester United target Matic.

Serbian midfielder Matic had two years at Chelsea early in his career but never started a match for them and spent the second season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem.

But the 25-year-old has blossomed in Lisbon after joining in summer 2011 as part of the deal that took David Luiz to Stamford Bridge,

Matic has been watched by United scouts in his last two games and the Old Trafford giants have stepped up their interest.
