According to the Sun, Man Utd star Nemanja Matic is in discussions with MLS outfit Chicago Fire over a potential transfer in the next couple of weeks.
The 31-year-old midfielder’s current deal with the Red Devils is set to expire in the summer, making this mid-season period the last opportunity for the Manchester outfit to cash in on the ace.
The Sun add that Chicago are willing to propose the Serbian a £5m-a-year deal, which would see him become the side’s designated signing.
It’s also replied that the MLS outfit’s large Eastern European fanbase is one of the reasons why they’re keen on the ex-Chelsea star.
Nemanja Matic has spent the most of this season in a fringe role. Though, the ace has found himself back in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side recently following the injury to Scott McTominay. French superstar Paul Pogba is also on the sideline.
The potential sale of Nemanja Matic to an MLS outfit could actually be ideal for Manchester United as the American top-flight’s transfer window doesn’t close until the end of next month.
This gives the Red Devils time to get back their injured midfielders before cashing in on the star.
