Despite the Toure’s praise for the former Chelsea star, Matic has found it difficult to break into Solskjaer’s side this season.
He is tipped to leave Old Trafford in January by some media outlets but it is yet to be seen if the player will eventually put an end to his Manchester United career.
Inter Milan, West Ham and AC Milan are said to be leading the race for his signature but none of them has made any official approach towards signing him as at the time of this report.
Meanwhile, Matic could force a move out of the Red Devils in the winter if situations doesn’t get better because he is reportedly thinking of his chances of making Serbia’s Euro 2020 squad.
