Manchester United ‘reject Nemanja Matic swap deal’ – Mirror Online

Manchester United have reportedly quashed a proposed swap deal from Inter Milan involving Nemanja Matic and Radja Nainggolan .

Inter have appointed Antonio Conte as their new boss and the Italian appears to be eyeing a reunion with Matic, after winning the Premier League together at Chelsea in 2017.

The source have claimed that Inter are willing to offer Nainggolan-plus-cash as they attempt to prize Matic to the San Siro, but United are standing their ground , according to The Sun .

It is believed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rejected the approach, which suggests Matic could be an integral part of United’s midfield during the 19/20 season.

Nainggolan’s future is destined elsewhere after Inter publicly stated that he is not part of Conte’s plans. They previously offered the Belgian to Barcelona in exchange for Arturo Vidal , before turning their attention to United and Matic.

Another Inter star being guided towards the exit door is striker Mauro Icardi , with the club hoping to use the Argentine in order to land United’s Romelu Lukaku .

Like Matic, Lukaku has been linked with a summer switch and Inter are a possible destination. Conte missed out on capturing the Belgian powerhouse during his time as Chelsea boss.

This is the start of a major shake-up at Inter resulting from Conte’s appointment, and Matic has been identified as a key acquisition ahead of the new season.

The Serbian joined United from Chelsea for £40 million in August 2017, signing a three-year deal under Jose Mourinho after the pair had worked together in West London.

The 30-year-old has made 187 Premier League appearances, scoring six goals and notching 18 assists. He has featured 87 times for United, scoring three and assisting three.

Great change is happening at both United and Inter Milan, but it remains to be seen whether these clubs will do business before the transfer window slams shut next month.
