Nemanja Matic reportedly in London for Chelsea medical

Michael Steele

Hooray!

Several journalists are now reporting that Nemanja Matic is in London for his Chelsea medical, with the deal expected to become official as long as everything goes well.

As long as Daniel Levy doesn't come swooping in with a big bag of cash, I'd have to assume that we'll be hearing confirmation of the transfer in the next 48 hours. Theoretically that would make him available for the Manchester United match, though I can't imagine Jose Mourinho would push him straight into the starting XI.

Regardless, it sounds like we should probably start speculating on what jersey number Matic will be assigned, as his arrival seems to be a mere formality at this point. It will be a welcome addition, strengthening the midfield is long overdue.
