​Pallister: Manchester United should sign Chelsea midfielder Matic

Club legend Gary Pallister has stated that Manchester United need to pull out all the stops to sign Nemanja Matic.

United are currently in the market to sign a new midfielder and Matic has strongly been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent times.

It is unclear as to whether United will eventually end up completing the signing of Matic as they are reportedly unwilling to match his asking price of around £50m but Pallister has urged the Red Devils to go all out in order to sign the Serbian international.

“Matic is a physical presence and apart from [Marouane] Fellaini we have quite a small midfield,” Pallister said.

“When we looked at United last season we lacked that presence and Matic will certainly bring that. He’s an excellent player though and it would be a surprise if Chelsea were prepared to let him go.”
