Man United manager preparing to sell £120,000-a-week star in January
Red Devils coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to allow Nemanja Matic to leave the club in winter, provided he can sign a replacement. Serbia international, a £35m signing from Chelsea in 2017, has been frozen out by the Norwegian boss since he replaced Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has allowed the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and Chris Smalling to leave the Red Devils since he took charge and he doesn’t see a future for Nemanja at Man United.
Red Devils expect to make at least one signing in the winter window and Nemanja, who has been ousted by Fred and Scott McTominay this term, is open to leaving in search of first-team football.
And Solskjaer is happy to sanction his departure if he can find a replacement in the winter transfer window. Matic’s departure was blocked last summer as Norwegian tactician wanted to retain some experience in the squad.
Red Devils failed with a move for Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he cannot afford to make all of his desired changes at once.
Both Milan and Inter Milan are interested in Serbian midfielder, whose contract expires at the end of the campaign. However, the 31-year-old midfielder’s contract includes a clause that allows Red Devils to extend his contract by 12 months, meaning they can demand a fee for the footballer.
Nemanja hasn’t featured for the club since October 3rd in a 0-0 draw with AZ Alkmaar. Man United started this season terribly as they are in a 7th place in the Premier League table.
