Manchester United Looking At Chelsea Reject, But What Could He Offer?

The Mirror say that Manchester United are watching former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic as they look to strengthen the middle of their squad, so I thought that I would take a moment to run through their current options and have a look where the Serbia international would fit in.

Matic was a part of the deal that took David Luiz to Stamford Bridge in 2011 after making no impact in west London, but he has thrived in the Portuguese top tier since arriving. Last season he was awarded with the Player of the Season for the whole division and has established himself as one of the most efficient defensive midfielders in Europe.

Michael Carrick currently plays as the shield in the United midfield but with Matic coming in it could release the England international into a more creative role. Carrick’s range of passing is quite incredible but he’s often restricted in his ambition.

Matic is a stronger player than both Tom Cleverley and Anderson, while he’s also more energetic than Carrick.

He would add muscle, fight and a real bite to the United midfield and for me he would be the ideal man to come in and solidify.

United fans, what would you think of Matic in your side?
