Manchester United are closing in on Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic after Juventus back out of any type of deal.

Matic wasn’t taken on Chelsea’s pre season tour of Asia, making his move away even more likely.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claim Juventus were  unable to compete with the Red Devils on all of the fees being offered, both transfer fee and wages.

Matic has been reported to want to work with his old boss again, and the move looks ever closer.

Matic looks to be sidelined at Chelsea, after the recent arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS Monaco.
