Nemanja Matic reportedly left Manchester United’s Wednesday training session after just 24 minutes.
Rumours are circling about his potential departure from Old Trafford in January.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has chosen the Serb in only 5 games this season and has often picked Scott McTominay, Fred and Andreas Pereira over him. There is no doubt that at 31, Matic’s best days are behind him but does he deserve to drop so far down the pecking order?
He is waiting to play since September and the wait could continue through United’s Europa League fixture against Astana on Thursday night. Matic arrived in training with a jolly attitude, expressing no signs of a sudden departure.
The reason behind him leaving the session so soon has only raise speculation about his future. He has already been linked to the likes of Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan. Tottenham Hotspur also seem like a strong possibility now that his former boss, Jose Mourinho has taken charge of the North Londoners.
The Red Devils are more than happy to offload Matic. Solskjaer is keen to add a younger piece to his midfield ranks. He is known to be keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
