Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to not use Nemanja Matić as much as Jose Mourinho did has led to rumours over the midfielder’s future.
The Serbia international’s contract expires in 2020, but Manchester United have an option to further extend it by a year.
For over a month or so, multiple reports in Italy have talked about Inter Milan’s interest in the 31-year-old.
Calciomercato.it now claims the Nerazzurri will look to strengthen midfield in the next two transfer windows.
For January, Matić remains a ‘favourite’ for the Serie A club’s leaders, despite Antonio Conte preferring Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal over the United player.
The Italians signed Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sánchez from United in the summer and the report adds the Inter leadership will try to sign Matić on ‘advantageous economic conditions’, using the former Chelsea man’s will to try a new experience as leverage.
In the summer, Inter’s plan is to sign a top-quality midfielder like Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić or Ajax’s Donny van de Beek.
