First team star to leave: Chelsea star fancies move – trains alone, players think he’s off

CHELSEA star Nemanja Matic reportedly trained alone yesterday afternoon amid speculation he could join Manchester United or Inter Milan.

The Serbia international has established himself in the Blues’ first-team setup since returning to Stamford Bridge from Benfica in January 2014.

And, alongside racking up 151 first-team appearances, he’s helped the west Londoners win four trophies, including a pair of Premier League titles.

Matic has been heavily linked with a Chelsea exit this summer though, with Manchester United and Inter Milan both said to be interested in signing him up.

Reports suggest a move to Old Trafford is more likely than to Mmilan Stadium, with the 28-year-old apparently keen on a reunion with Jose Mourinho.

Sources have told The Telegraph that Matic still fancies a United switch.

The newspaper reckon incoming Tiemoue Bakayoko’s injury lay-off shouldn’t damage his hopes of a move.

And neither should the fact United prevented Antonio Conte from landing top target Romelu Lukaku.

Despite wanting to leave, Matic was back at Cobham yesterday for the first day of pre-season training.

The Telegraph say he worked alone with a trainer in the afternoon though.

And they claim some of his Chelsea team-mates believe that means he’s off – whether or not it’s for United.
