Nemanja Matic appears to be a Manchester United player after a picture emerged of the Serbia international in the club’s training gear.
Chelsea have agreed to allow the 28-year-old to join their Premier League rivals for £40million after initially baulking at the idea, preferring him to make a move to Serie A side Juventus.
However, with the Italians unable to meet the financial package on offer at Old Trafford and with the player intent on leaving Stamford Bridge, it appears that the deal is close to completion.
And the move looked to be in its final stages on Sunday as one picture appeared on picture, purportedly of Matic in his new Manchester United training gear.
The snap appeared to be one sent to someone in Serbia, with the reply underneath stating: ‘First hand information’ in Serbian.

Matic also had the No 31 emblazoned on his top, suggesting he will be taking up the number vacated by Bastian Schweinsteiger following his move to Chicago Fire.
The move will see Matic reunite with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, whom he won the league under in 2015.
