'Mourinho eyeing Matic reunion ahead of Man Utd exit'

Roma manager Jose Mourinho is ready to offer Nemanja Matic a Manchester United escape route, according to reports in Italy.

Serbian midfielder Matic had an option to extend his contract with United until 2023 but has made clear his plans to move on this summer.

United are believed to have been blindsided by the decision, but interim manager Ralf Rangnick has continued to give the 33-year-old minutes in the league since the announcement.

The veteran has been signed by Mourinho for two clubs already, so a move to Roma would make it three. He signed for United during the Portuguese manager's time in charge in 2017, having previously re-joined Chelsea in January 2014 during Mourinho's second stint in charge.
