Nemanja Matic

A round up of the latest transfer stories about Chelsea.

Nemanja Matic is expected to complete a medical at Chelsea today ahead of a £25 million move from Benfica.

Speculation has been growing over a return to Stamford Bridge for the 26-year-old although nothing official has yet been announced.

“I still can't say anything about this, let's see what happens in the future, you have to ask the club and the president,” he said at last night’s Ballon d’Or gala dinner.

Manchester United could make a €32 million move for Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

Mata has been constantly linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this season after failing to nail down a regular first team starting place.

United are keen on signing a central midfielder although it remains to be seen whether Chelsea would consider selling to a Premier League rival.
