Nemanja Matic refuses to rule out reunion with Jose Mourinho

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has refused to rule out a possible reunion with Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur. The Serbia international has already played under the Portuguese guidance at both Chelsea and United and reports have linked him with a possible move to north London at the turn of the year.

Speaking to OmniSport, Matic refused to rule out the possibility and acknowledged that it is difficult to predict the future, he told: “As I know, you never know what’s going to happen in life [when asked about Spurs link]. At the moment I’m a Manchester United player and very focused on my job and in the future we will see what’s going to happen.”

Meanwhile, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that there is the chance of United losing players during the forthcoming transfer window, particularly with some of them discontent with the gametime, he told in a press conference: “There’s always a chance of it. And I can say with 99.9 per cent sure they won’t go but there is always a chance teams will be interested in some of ours. Maybe they’re not happy, haven’t played enough, so there might be a chance.”

Matic has made just six appearances for the Red Devils throughout the campaign and out of those, only three have come in the Premier League. Scott McTominay and Fred have gradually cemented their spots at the heart of the club’s midfield and Paul Pogba is expected to add to the competition after recovering from a long-standing ankle problem.

Meanwhile, Matic may not be the solitary player heading through the exit door next month. Young graduates Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong have been reluctant to pen new deals due to the lack of playing time with the senior squad and the duo could make way for nominal fees in January, given their contracts expire at the end of the season.
