​Neville: Man Utd need a player like Matic

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes the club need to sign a holding midfielder player.

Reports have linked Chelsea's Nemanja Matic with a move to Old Trafford, something that Neville endorses.

"United need another holding midfield player," Neville told Sky Sports.

"Michael Carrick has got one more year but he can't play every single week so they do need to have that player who can come in and do the same job - and Matic would be able to do that.

"Morgan Schneiderlin was let go earlier in the season and Bastian Schweinsteiger didn't get a game, so you're talking about there needing to be a replacement for them and ultimately Matic would fit the bill."
