GdS: Milan battling two clubs for Man Utd man who cost €45m – ‘talks ongoing’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still interested in a move for Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic who could leave this month, a report claims.

A number of outlets have claimed recently that Milan could look to add more experience to their midfield, with La Gazzetta dello Sport insisting Matic is among the possible targets to do just that.

He arrived at Manchester United in a £40m (€45m) deal in the summer of 2017 when Jose Mourinho was in charge but does not seem to be a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at present.

Calciomercato.com confirmed this month that Matic remains in the sights of Milan and Inter with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he will be available for free then or on a cut-price deal in January.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Nicolo Schira on Twitter, the Serbia international is indeed still a target for the Rossoneri, as well as Atletico Madrid and MLS side Chicago Fire.

He adds that the 31-year-old could be allowed to depart Old Trafford, with ‘talks ongoing’ over his future.
