Sky Sports reports that Spanish club Atletico Madrid is interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic, according to Sky Italy.

Matic has only made six appearances this season for United and he hasn’t played in the Premier League since a 2-0 defeat at West Ham in September. Inter Milan allegedly considered signing the Serbian in October as one of our targets for the January transfer window, according to Sky in Italy.

Matic has fallen down the pecking order at United with Scott McTominay and Fred ahead of him and playing regularly for the team. Then with Paul Pogba returning to the midfield, Matic has become redundant. He is surplus to requirements and its just matter time before he leaves the club.

This is good news for United fans because Nemanja Matic isn’t good enough to play for United anymore. He lacks the pace and passion for the game. The Serbian international is slower than he used to be and doesn’t win 50-50 balls whether its in the air or on the ground. He doesn’t tackle to win back the ball and looks unmotivated many times when he plays. Its time for him to leave the club.

Tell me what do think about Atletico Madrid being interested in signing Matic. Do you believe that he should be sold by United in January?
