After the big money arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, Nemanja Matic’s Chelsea career appears to be all but over.
Having brought him back to Stamford Bridge for his successful second spell at the club in 2014, Jose Mourinho is apparently now keen to add the rangy midfielder to his Manchester United squad.
With a £40 million offer reportedly on the table, the 28-year-old is priced at just 4/7 (1.57) with Paddy Power to begin the new season under his former boss at Old Trafford.
However, while that move was looking imminent a few weeks ago, Chelsea are said to be less keen on selling to their rivals since losing out to them in the race for Romelu Lukaku.
This bad blood between the clubs could hand the advantage to Juventus, who showed a firm interest in the Serbia international last year.
With Massimiliano Allegri still targeting the Blues man, odds of 21/10 (3.10) could prove lucrative on the Italian champions beating the Red Devils to his signature this summer.
Whoever wins that seemingly two-horse race, the lengthy 9/2 (5.50) odds on him staying at Chelsea underline just how likely he is to be turning out for a new team come September.
Having earned a hefty windfall from the sales of Bernardo Silva and Bakayoko this transfer window, Monaco are on offer at 6/1 (7.00) to offer Matic a new home in Ligue Un as a replacement for the latter.
Alternatively, big spending AC Milan are on offer at 14/1 (15.00) to add the former Benfica player to their long list of signings this summer, while Paris Saint-Germain can be backed at 22/1 (23.00) to bring him to the French capital.
