According to the Telegraph, midfielder Nemanja Matic is edging closer to a Man Utd exit in the January transfer window. A move that may be welcomed.
Apparently, Matic could be leaving Man Utd in January after he has received interest from other clubs. He has also fallen behind in the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Scott McTominay and Fred are favoured more in the midfield of late. AC Milan and Inter Milan have supposedly shown Matic some interest and he looks like he is willing to go.
Some Man Utd fans would probably be happy to see him go. However, he wouldn’t be the only one.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be reluctant to sell some of his players as the future of others, like Paul Pogba, is still unknown. Alongside the lack of midfield options he has on his hands at the moment, OGS can not afford to lose another player in this area of his squad.
Here are two players who should follow Matic should he leave in January…
Man Utd defender Phil Jones
Most Man United fans would probably agree that Phil Jones needs to go. The 27-year-old has fallen way out of favour at Man United.
It is safe to say that Old Trafford wouldn’t exactly miss him. Man United are going through a time of developing young talent and moving forward.
It doesn’t look like Phil Jones is part of that plan, so why not let him go?
Even though the 34-year-old still gets game time, some fans think his time at Old Trafford is up.
When January comes around, some fans may want to see a replacement for Young drafted in.
To get some new talent brought in when the transfer window opens, Man United will need to make some money and open up some spaces.
Who do you want to see leave Old Trafford?
