Matic wants United move despite top European interest

Manchester United are now the frontrunners for Matic but he is also wanted by Inter Milan and Juventus.

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 worldwide Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has entered the final year of his contract in north London.

Juventus have joined Inter Milan in the race for Chelsea's Nemanja Matic, although the 28-year-old's first choice remains Manchester United.

Having been hinted that he is not a part of Antonio Conte's plans next season, with the pursuit of AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, Matic has been keen on moving out of London.

The Italian champions may also be wary of Alex Sandro possibly departing the Old Lady this summer to join Conte at Chelsea and see a potential swap-deal in the offing.

It is believed that Juventus are prepared to offer the midfielder a £125,000-a-week deal to move to Turin, while Manchester United have offered £150,000-a-week.

"He is a Chelsea player and we have to respect the club and manager and owner".

Given the fact that Serbian worldwide Nemanja Matic also holds a Slovak citizenship, it would exempt him from occupying a non-EU spot in the team both of which have been taken by Douglas Costa and Rodrigo Bentancour.
