Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic keen on Manchester United switch

United will take in a International Champions Cup derby date with City on July 20 in Houston.

United is also in the market for a striker, having included Zlatan Ibrahimovic, now sidelined by a serious knee injury, on its list of players to be released.

Spain’s prosecutor’s office in Madrid filed a tax fraud lawsuit against the Portugal forward last week, but newly-elected Real president Perez has described the entire situation as “very strange”.

It remains to be seen how Benfica respond but United aren’t the only club showing a keen interest as the newspaper states that Barcelona have also identified Semedo as a potential signing – although the Catalans priority remains Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.

“I think every move means you have to adapt to a new environment but I feel comfortable in myself”. All this is very odd.

And he added: “I’ve spoken to him”. Speaking to the club’s official website, he said his main aim for pre-season is simply “being a part of it all, because last summer I was involved in the European Championships with England“.

Whether he would be allowed to link up with Mourinho again, however, is debatable to say the very least. I have not spoken to any [other clubs].

Smalling has been a regular in the United side since joining from West London, but has been up-and-down in people’s judgements, and he now seems to have fallen out of favour with United boss Jose Mourinho.

“The 22-year-old Swedish global centre back is a versatile defender and will make his debut on the summer tour of the U.S. in July”.

The USA tour includes games against LA Galaxy, Barcelona, Real Madrid and local rivals Manchester City, which will be the first Manchester derby hosted overseas, in Houston.
