Chelsea are battling to keep Nemanja Matic as the Serbian midfielder pushes for move to Manchester United.
Matic came close to leaving Stamford Bridge last summer only for manager Antonio Conte to block his exit.
The defensive midfielder has a strong mentality, which is hugely admired by Mourinho.
And According to ManchesterEveningNews, the 28 year old has reportedly agreed terms with Manchester United, and keen on a reunion with Mourinho after their previous two-year spell together at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho was the man who brought Matic to the Premier League, after signing him from Benfica in 2014.
The 28-year-old has also seen his two closest friends at the club in Branislav Ivanovic and Asmir Begovic, who have joined Zenit St Petersburg and Bournemouth respectively.
With Matic’s arrival at United seeming imminent, this may end the Red Devils interest in Tottenham star Eric Dier and Chelsea’s target Tiemoue Bakayoko.
With just two weeks to go until Manchester United head off on pre-season tour, only one player has signed for the Red Devils which is Victor Lindelof but time will tell if Matic will be next signing at Old Trafford.
