Manchester United close to signing Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic

Manchester United went all-in for Matic just days after their first choice, Radja Nainggolan, extended his Roma contract. "The other is an attacking player through the wings to give me more attacking options", he said.

"I saw so many things happen that I refuse to say more than I am telling you now".

A supposed leaked picture of Nemanja Matic in a Manchester United training top did the rounds on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

An agreement has been reached in principle with Fellaini over a four-year contract worth in the region of €4m (£3.6m), which would make him their highest-paid player.

Mourinho stopped short of confirming that the deal was done, but did reveal that the player is keen on a reunion having previously worked with him at Stamford Bridge.

- The holding midfielder was a key of Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side that won the Premier League and the EFL Cup in 2014-15. I don't know. I really don't know.

Matic was left out of Chelsea's pre-season tour of Asia and has been working on his fitness at the club's Cobham training ground.

Chelsea signed Tiemoue Bakayoko, and the presence of N'Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas alongside the former Monaco man made Matic expendable for Antonio Conte.

We will however refrain from reporting the move as fact until we are 100 per cent sure it has happened, as to not lose any further credibility in your eyes, dear reader!

Mourinho was also robust in his defence on Victor Lindelof.

There had been some thought that Chelsea would not want to do business with United after they hijacked their bid for Romelu Lukaku earlier in the summer.

"And we are working very well".
