Leicester City want Manchester United midfielder?

Matic to Leicester City?

Leicester City are reportedly interested in landing the signature of Nemanja Matic from Manchester United.

The Foxes have been busy in the transfer market, and they have already signed Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare.

The latter has bolstered their midfield options, but Sky Italy journalist Rudy Galetti claims that they are still keen on Matic.

The 32-year-old is currently a back-up midfielder for the Red Devils, and he has two years remaining on his contract.

United are not actively looking to sell him, but it is claimed that a fee of around £11 million could test their resolve.

Matic is currently behind Paul Pogba, Fred and Scott McTominay in the pecking order for a starting midfield role.

United are actively looking for a new midfielder, and this could pave the way for the Serbian's departure this summer.

The club have a strong interest in West Ham United's Declan Rice, but he could cost a staggering fee of nearly £100m.
