Jose Mourinho wants a reunion with Nemanja Matic. The Manchester United manager is determined to sign a dominant holding midfielder this summer to succeed Michael Carrick and bring the best out of Paul Pogba. Tottenham’s Eric Dier is another target – but there is an acceptance among Old Trafford’s hierarchy that negotiating with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could be too problematic. Matic is considered a more attainable target in a summer when Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is expected to make significant additions to his Premier League title winners.
