Manchester United on verge of deal for Chelsea's Nemanja Matic

In what traditionally forms the opener for the Premier League this season’s Community Shield is a replica of last season’s FA Cup final in which Chelsea took on Arsenal

The signing was done after Matic was seen training at Old Trafford sporting Red Devils' jersey in Manchester earlier on the day.

- Matic has scored seven goals in 151 appearances in all competitions during a three-and-a-half year stay at Stamford Bridge.

The Serbia global is understood to prefer a move to Manchester United and link up with Mourinho, his former at manager at Chelsea.

Chelsea have at least consented to allow Nemanja Matic to join Premier League rivals Manchester United in a £40 million deal that should be wrapped up next week.

Jose Mourinho has grown increasingly frustrated at the clubs lack of activity in the transfer market and has confirmed he's hopeing to bring in another central midfielder this summer.

Manchester United have been in the market for a defensive midfielder this transfer window. Matic has been reportedly pictured in the United jersey with the image doing the rounds on social media.

Matic is wearing the number 31.

It is claimed in the report that the move could be completed in the coming days, but it may well be closer than Sky Sports think.

Italian champions Juventus were also understood to be keen on Matic.

The tale of Perisic's move to Old Trafford has been one of the stories of the summer, and it now appears Mourinho could miss out on his signature.

Manchester United play Valerenga today in a pre-season friendly.

United are reported to be ready to recoup some of the Matic fee by selling Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Turkish club Galatasaray.
