Nemanja Matic, potentially low-cost option to replace Borja Valero in January
Total rift between Nemanja Matic and Manchester United. The relationship between the Serbian midfielder and Red Devils coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has hit rock bottom to the point that Matic is seriously considering leaving in January.
Inter? Well, Marotta is watching as a spectator right now but both he and Ausilio continue to maintain an excellent relationship with the player’s agent. Keep in mind that Matic was close to Juventus before he made his move to Old Trafford. The player’s contract will expire next June and both sides have shown little to no desire to renew. Therefore, a January departure is likely.
Should Borja Valero leave in a couple of months, Matic could be the ideal element to strengthen Inter midfield given the different characteristics that Matic has compered to the players present in the squad. If no deal could be reached in January, then negotiation will be directly with the player for next summer as free agent.
