Jose Mourinho revealed the Chelsea man’s desire to make the switch to Old Trafford, as he refused to confirm the deal
Nemanja Matic seems to be edging closer and closer to a reunion with his former manager, after Chelsea reportedly agreed to let the midfielder go for a fee of £40 million.
Jose Mourinho spoke about the potential deal after his side overcame Valerenga in a pre-season friendly, but he refused to be drawn upon the details of the transfer.
‘I’m waiting for news. I know that he wants the move very very much’, the Portuguese coach said. ‘When he wants very much the chance is bigger’.
He was reluctant to discuss any further, not knowing how close the deal was to completion: ‘I refuse to say more than I’m telling you’, he added. ‘I think we have a chance but in football until it’s official, I saw so many things happen’.
Mourinho took advantage to confirm Marouane Fellaini will remain at Old Trafford. ‘It’s easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane. He is too important to me. No chance’, he concluded.
