Manchester United have reportedly readied the No.31 shirt for Nemanja Matic as they close in on signing the Serbian midfielder from Chelsea.
Matic is said to have completed his medical at the Carrington training ground of the Red Devils ahead of his £50million transfer from Chelsea.
According to the Manchester Evening news, Matic has been spotted putting on a training gear of the Manchester club in a new photo and the image is said to be legitimate
Mourinho, while speaking about Matic’s transfer over the weekend said; “I’m waiting for news. I know that he wants the move very, very much,” adding that, “I think we have a chance but in football until things are official you never know.
“No.31 is a free jersey, I don’t know if he was there as I haven’t been there today.”
Former Bayern Munich Star, Bastian Schweinsteiger had donned the number 31 during his stint with United and Matic looks like the Man to inherit the number.
