Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is planning a potential return with midfielder Nemanja Matic, who faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge.

The Serbian international had been a key figure for the Blues for most of the campaign apart from the final stages where Cesc Fabregas was offered a chance ahead of him in the lineup.

According to The Sun, the 28-year-old could become Mourinho's first recruit of the summer transfer window amid the insecurity over his Blues future.

Chelsea have stepped up their interest in signing Monaco anchorman Tiemoue Bakayoko, and his arrival is likely to hinder Matic's opportunities even more.

Matic played a key role in the Blues title triumph under Mourinho in 2014/15, and the Special One is eager to add the Serb to his ranks in order to end United's four-year wait for the league title.

The Serbia international has turned out 146 times for the west London giants since his return from Benfica in the winter of 2014.
