With Jose Mourinho having been officially announced as Manchester United manager in recent weeks, many have begun to wonder if the former Chelsea boss would look to his old club to poach talent for the coming season.
Many Chelsea stars have been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks with some reports claiming that Mourinho has already spoken to some of his former players about potentially joining him at United.
However, it seems that 27-year-old Nemanja Matic is the only one who is truly keen on the deal.
Nemanja Matic, 27, has told incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte he wants to join former Blues manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

According to a report in The Sun this morning, the Serbian has now decided that he wants to follow Mourinho to Old Trafford due to a ‘strong relationship’ with his former boss and he has already informed Antonio Conte of his decision.
The Special One is now keen on a reunion at Old Trafford as he seeks a huge summer overhaul, and the feeling is mutual…
Conte has held talks with a number of disillusioned stars including Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, and Matic has already told the Italian he wants out.
This one has a bit to go yet but with Mourinho consistently building his teams around a strong defensive presence in midfield, a move for Matic would make perfect sense.
Should he end up togging out in red next season, we wouldn’t be one bit surprised.
Can't see Chelsea allowing Matic to leave and join United

Might as well put up a sign of selling club on Stamford Bridge if we let Matic go to United.

If Matic actually goes to Man United and rediscovers form, we have to pelt him every time he comes to the Bridge
