Nemanja Matic has told Chelsea that he is determined to seal a move to Manchester United, reports Ken Lawrence on the back page of the Sunday World.

Matic has been heavily linked with a move to United all summer, with their manager Jose Mourinho even referencing his former Chelsea midfielder when he spoke about his transfer targets on Saturday.

“We don’t have our door closed. We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. We need more,” he stated.

“We wanted four, so I could say 50 percent of the job is done, but I won't say that because it's so difficult. I wouldn't like to be in Ed Woodward's position, negotiating, because everything is really difficult.

“Maybe we don’t get two, maybe we got one, but we need one to give us more options and balance. We have players in the squad that cannot play football for the next few months; players like Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young.

“So I don’t want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct to do it.”
