“He fits the bill!” Neville explains why Man United should sign Matic this summer

Date Posted,July 12, 2017

Gary Neville has labeled Nemanja Matic as the Premier League midfielder Manchester United should sign this summer.

The Red Devils are in the market for a central midfielder following the successful signings of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku

The Serbian has been linked with rejoining Jose Mourinho since the start of the transfer window, with Chelsea reportedly willing to listen to offers.

And with the potential transfers of Eric Dier, Fabinho and Tiemoue Bakayoko to Old Trafford all falling through, Matic remains United’s likely option.

“United need another holding midfield player,” said Neville. “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.

“It’s a strange one for Chelsea to let him go because I thought he was really good for them with Kante.

“I think they need to strengthen, so I’m not sure why they’re letting him go and they must have a replacement.”
