New Chelsea signing poses with reported Man United target

It is understood that Arsenal are looking to beat Juve into snapping up the 28-year-old by making a stunning player exchange deal which includes exciting England global Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has entered the final year of his contract in north London.

Matic was an important figure in the Chelsea line-up last season, making 30 starts in the league alongside N'Golo Kante, helping them win the title for the second time in three years.

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is reportedly holding out for a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho as he waits on a £40m switch to Man Utd.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is expected to replace Matic in the Chelsea side this season - the France worldwide is close to finalising a move from Monaco.

Matic will meet with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia over his future and will hope that the £39.7million arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko will hasten his departure.

Juventus are also keen on Matic though and, according to Italian daily Corriere dello Sport, the midfielder is open to joining the Italian champions.

Chelsea are willing to let Matic travel overseas, instead of selling to any of their local rivals, Manchester United and Arsenal, and would welcome the decision to see Matic leave to Italy. They are reportedly in talks with Juventus, as they are more open to the player going overseas.

Liverpool are also interested in Chamberlain but Klopp does not regard him as a priority signing like Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk.
