Mourinho wants Benfica's Matic to join him at Chelsea

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho wants Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic to join him at Chelsea.

Serbian Matic signed for Chelsea from Kovice for £1.5million on a four-year contract in August 2009 but made just three sub appearances.

Part-exchanged in the David Luiz deal, Matic,24, has gone on to become a real lynchpin of Benfica's midfield. Matic will face his old club in the Europa League final next Wednesday.
