Three days ago, we relayed news from Italy that Nemanja Matić’s agent has offered his client to Serie A clubs.
Calciomercato once again claims the Manchester United midfielder’s representative has offered the 31-year-old to AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus.
The Serbia international’s contract expires in 2020 and the Old Trafford club have an option to extend the contract by a further year. However, the report explains he is unlikely to ‘prolong’ his stay beyond this season.
That’s because he’s never felt like a key player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s guidance.
Matić is aware Milan are looking for an experienced midfielder, and it’s stated he believes he can have a central role in their project.
The Italian website explains his profile appeals to Milan, but there are three obstacles for them to sign the player.
Matić earns €7m net in wages at Manchester United and is demanding the same salary from the Rossoneri. Ivan Gazidis is skeptical about paying such wages for a player who will be 32 before the start of the next campaign.
The third one is competition from Inter as their new manager Antonio Conte has already managed Matić at Chelsea and the Nerazzurri coach is more than willing to take him on a free transfer.
Calciomercato end their report by stating Matić offers himself to Milan, but the deal is ‘anything but simple’.
