It seemed all done: Nemaja Matic to Manchester United for £ 40m.
But after “Lukaku gate” Chelsea are not sure to close the deal anymore.
It was rumoured that only a medical was missing to complete the Serbian midfielder move to Old Trafford, but after The Guardian claims that Chelsea could now reject Man United’s advances after being beaten to the signing of Romelu Lukaku, who was one of Antonio Conte’s priority targets.
The Belgian striker is believed to have undergone his medical for the Red Devils in Los Angeles last night.
Lukaku is spending his break with Paul Pogba and it’s understood that the France midfielder has been influential in persuading the striker to snub Chelsea in favour of a move to Old Trafford.
