Man United To Demand £15m For Midfielder During January Window

13-time Premier League champions Manchester United will demand a sizeable transfer fee for aging midfielder Nemanja Matic during the January window according to the publication from the stables of The Sun.

Serbian international Matic has lost his place in the Manchester United starting XI this season and he’s said to be weighing up his options ahead of the January transfer market.

Italian Serie A title contenders Juventus and Inter Milan are both interested in Matic who has played 45 times for the Serbian national team.

The 31-year-old midfielder recently returned to full fitness after almost two months out as a result of an unspecified injury.

He was a regular fixture in the Manchester United team until this season when the former Chelsea and Benfica player lost his place in the team to young Scottish national team star Scott McTominay.

Manchester United signed Nemanja Matic from rivals Chelsea for a fee said to be around £40m in the summer of 2017.

He signed a three-year deal until next summer upon his transfer from Chelsea meaning that he has a little over six months left on his current deal at Old Trafford.

The aforementioned publication said that Manchester United want to sell him for just £15m in January with the club keen to stop him from walking away for free.
