Man United favourites for Matic – but Juventus and Arsenal keen
With the imminent arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, Nemanja Matic’s Chelsea career is drawing to a close.
But where the Serbian goes is very much still up in the air.
Manchester United are 7/4 favourites, but with the Red Devils have already snatched Romelu Lukaku from the Blues, it seems unlikely Antonio Conte will sell his defensive midfielder to a chief rival.
The Red Devils were even-money a month ago, so they’ve drifted following the Lukaku signing.
And recent reports claim that Juventus are now eyeing up a move for the 28-year-old.
Our traders certainly reckon it’s plausible that Matic could join the Serie A champions, with 2/1 the price on offer.
And it makes sense from a Chelsea perspective too, as the Stamford Bridge outfit are reluctant to sell to Premier League sides.
That could hurt Arsenal’s chances, but the Gunners also believed to be keen on bringing in the two-time Premier League winner.
Arsene Wenger’s side are third favourites at 5/1, and could certainly Matic’s experience and prowess in the middle.
It’s 8/1 he heads to Inter Milan, with 10s on offer for the other team at the San Siro, AC Milan.
The Serbia international has made over 150 appearances since rejoining the Blues from Benfica in 2014.
