Fulham are interested in signing Nemanja Matic once he leaves Manchester United
In April, the former Chelsea midfielder announced his decision to leave the club after five seasons in a lengthy statement on social media.
Matic wrote: ‘After much thought, I have decided that this season will be my last with Manchester United.
I have informed the board, the coach and the players of my decision.
It has been a great honor and a privilege to play for this great club. Many thanks to the fans for their unconditional support.
“Now I will give everything until the end of the season to help my teammates finish as well as possible.”
The Serbian midfielder ended his spell at Old Trafford after five years at the club
The 33-year-old made 189 appearances for United in his five seasons, failing to win a club trophy for the first time in his career.
The football veteran could offer much-needed experience to the Fulham dressing room, as Matic won the Premier League twice during his time at Chelsea.
Fulham’s average age for their team is around 25.7, which is not ideal for a team looking to re-establish themselves as one of the best teams in England.
