Chelsea lead Man Utd for New Matic

Blues lead Grujic chase

Chelsea will reportedly seek to land the services of young midfielder Marko Grujic in January, and loan him back to Red Star Belgrade for the season.

The 19-year-old has caught interest from the likes of Chelsea, and Manchester United in recent weeks.

A report from The Guardian now understands that the Blues are likely to trump United in the pursuit of the talented enforcer, who has been dubbed as the ' next Nemanja Matic'.

It is added that the club will follow their policy of developing youth talent, and send the player back to his club on a temporary basis for the rest of the campaign.
