Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic has confirmed his interest in re-joining Chelsea during the January transfer window.

Matic made three Premier League appearances for the Blues before joining Benfica in 2011 – as part of a package deal that took David Luiz to Stamford Bridge.

But the 25-year-old is still highly rated by Chelsea scouts and Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be considering a bid to re-sign him in January.

And speaking amid the speculation Matic says he would be keen to return to Chelsea if the move became available.
