Manchester United Fans Are Less Than Impressed With The Reported Signing Of Nemanja Matic

Compared to the circus surrounding the arrivals of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic last year, it’s been a relatively quiet summer at Manchester United thus far.

Victor Lindelof was brought in from Benfica on June 10 for a fee of about €35 million while rumours of a number of other potential signings have rumbled on.

This afternoon, however, it appears the club has made significant strides towards their second acquisition of the window with a report from The Guardian claiming Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic will complete a medical at Carrington in the next 48 hours and will be a United player before the week is out.

Matic is a two-time Premier League winner but fans on Twitter remain somewhat apprehensive about the latest arrival.

There is some supporters though that are excited by the reported signing.

Matic’s imminent arrival surely means Monaco’s Fabinho, as was rumoured, will not arrive. With Marouane Fellaini seemingly not leaving anytime soon, Michael Carrick staying on another year and Ander Herrera still firmly in the manager’s plan, it’s difficult to imagine a second defensive midfielder arriving.

Should the Serbian sign on the dotted line in the coming days, he’ll be part of the squad that will travel to America in a fortnight for the first part of the Reds’ preseason tour.
