If reports are to be believed Serie A giants Juventus are apparently interested in roping in Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic as an alternative option for Paul Pogba. Nemanja will not only serve as a more than useful alternative option but will in fact be a lot cheaper than what United had demanded for Pogba.

Matic has played as many as 89 matches for Manchester United till date and is currently at Manchester on a contract which will expire in June 2020.

According to a report carried by Daily Mail, Juventus are quite keen on signing the Serbian midfielder for free since by then his contract with United would have expired. The 31-year-old is currently a regular starter for Manchester United but is expected to warm the benches after Pogba returns to the football pitch.

Matic is expected to move out of Manchester United if he does not start for them and Juventus could turn out to be a good place for him as the club has a history of signing free agents.

Earlier, Matic had stated that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should take full responsibility for the defeats of the team.

“The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“I have been in football for a long time, I have played almost all the games for all the clubs in the last 10 years. In order for me to play, one had to sit on the bench and accept that fact, and so do I now,” he had said.
