Manchester United defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic is reportedly keen to leave the club this winter, and a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur could be an option.

According to Forbes, the Serbia international midfielder has grown frustrated with life at Old Trafford after barely being used by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign.

Nemanja Matic has previously enjoyed success under Jose Mourinho at both Man Utd and Chelsea, and Forbes claim this could mean a reunion with the Portuguese tactician once again at Spurs could be an option for him this January.

It remains to be seen if Tottenham Hotspur would definitely sanction this move, as it arguably looks a needless risk for the north London club.

Jose Mourinho has a decent number of defensive midfielders to work with in this current Spurs squad, so there appears little need to bring in a player like Nemanja Matic, who isn’t playing for Manchester United and who has looked past his best for some time now.

The 31-year-old defensive midfielder is also linked by Forbes with Inter Milan, but they do note that the player hinted he’d be keen on the transfer to Spurs with his response to an Instagram post suggesting the deal could happen.
