​AC Milan abandon plans to sign Man Utd midfielder Matic

AC Milan have bowed out of the race to sign Nemanja Matic.

Milan were eager to bring the Manchester United midfielder to the club.

But the veteran Serbian international is now likely to stay with United.

And Calciomercato reports that because AC Milan director of football Zvonimir Boban has left the club, their interest in Matic is gone too.

Boban is the one who wanted to bring Matic to Milan, but he was sacked after an interview where he took aim at CEO Ivan Gazidis and Elliott Management, who own the club.

32-year-old Matic has a year left on his United deal after this season.
