Manchester United are set to lose the services of Nemanja Matic on a free transfer this summer.
Manchester United have been set back years over the last few seasons. Slowly but surely, the rot has set in.
This squad isn’t anywhere near good enough to compete at the highest level and it’s going to take Erik ten Hag a fair while to fix all the issues.
First and foremost, those players who aren’t deemed good enough will be moved on. Others will want to leave off their own back, purely due to how badly we’ve performed of late.
Well, one United veteran, in the form of Nemanja Matic, is all set to leave the club this summer ‘as it stands’. That’s according to Jonathan Shrager.
Matic is out of contract this summer and will be free to move on without the cost of a transfer fee hanging over him. The Serbia international has been nothing but a bit-part player this term.
Suddenly, United are looking extremely light in the midfield area. Paul Pogba is another who’ll depart, while who knows what’s happening with Donny van de Beek?
That leaves us with Fred, Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes. That’s it. There’s a good chance at least one central player is added this summer but as things stand, we’re looking thin on the ground.
That said, it does make sense to let Matic go, in my opinion anyway. He’s not the player he once was. He can no longer play multiple games a week and even when he does start, you’re not really sure which Matic is going to turn up.
In an ideal world, James Garner can come in and directly replace the former Chelsea man, but again, who knows what United has in store for the young Englishman?
