Juventus is reportedly hoping to sign Manchester United midfielder, Nemanja Matic on a free transfer at the end of this season.

The Serbian international has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford.  The midfielder is left frustrated over his lack of playing time so far this season.

The ex-Chelsea star admitted during the international break that he opened up to Solskjaer and told him he doesn’t agree with the decision.

Matic made his first start of the season against Leicester City yesterday. He has also made 89 appearances for United since joining from Chelsea in 2017 and hasn’t won any trophies.

His lack of action has put several clubs on alert including the Italian Champions, Juventus.

Matic’s current deal at Old Trafford expires at the end of this season. However, the Red Devils still retain the option of extending his deal by another year.

Juventus had earlier signed two high profile midfielders. That is Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot on free transfers in the summer. The club looks forward to do the same with Matic next year.

The 31-year-old started United’s 1-0 victory over Leicester on Saturday. Of late, he has been termed as a substitute for the club’s other four Premier League games in this campaign.

Juventus were heavily linked with a deal to resign Paul Pogba in the summer but the move failed to materialize.

Losing his midfield spot to Scottish youngster, Scott McTominay, 22, has been hard for Matic to swallow bearing in mind he was a £40m buy from Chelsea.

At this age of his career, he is not comfortable sitting on the bench. He is the latest Jose Mourinho’s signing to have a question mark over his Old Trafford future.

Who else?

Another Mourinho’s buy, defender Eric Bailly, is working hard towards an early return from a knee injury.

The Ivory Coast center-back was ruled out until December after being carried off on a stretcher in July’s friendly against Tottenham in China.

However, he has been stepping up his rehab in the gym at the red Devils’ Carrington HQ this week.

Solskjaer is hopeful he will be back several weeks earlier than anticipated by United’s medics.
