Report: Conte to decide Midfielder’s Future at Chelsea


Chelsea is in a dilemma over Nemanja Matic, as they are willing to have his services at Stamford Bridge for next season, but they have left the final decision to Antonio Conte, reports Sunday Express. In case the Serb is out-bound, Chelsea has tagged the 27-year-old at £18 million for possible bidders Manchester United and Juventus.

Nemanja Matic had a very quiet season with Chelsea as compared to the season when they won the League. It was difficult for him to find his footing and his inconsistency created doubts over his Chelsea future.

Nemanja Matic is closely followed by Manchester United, as ex-Chelsea boss Mourinho wants him at Old Trafford. Juventus is willing to sign Matic, as well as they are likely to lose Pogba this summer.

However, Chelsea will make sure Manchester United do not snap both Matic and Pogba. Chelsea are willing to keep a hold on Matic, but has left the decision on Conte who will be taking over from Monday to prepare the squad for pre-season tours in Austria and USA.
