Manchester United Ready to Move Big to Sign $117,000-a-week Star

Manchester United have been linked with Serbian international and Chelsea star Nemanja Matic for a long time now and it will be fair to say that the transfer saga is now becoming frustrating.
The Red Devils badly need a defensive midfielder to strengthen the squad in the summer transfer window and few days back, we covered a report (via Guardian) claiming that Mourinho is convinced that he will sign the £50million rated star (via The Sun) from the Blues.
Today, Independent have come up with somewhat a similar kind of news today. They claimed that United have given up pursuit of Tottenham star Eric Dier and are now ready to move over £40million to secure the signing of the 28-year-old play breaker.

The British source suggest that United felt that Chelsea will not like to send Matic to Old Trafford, however, now that the Blues have adequately strengthened their squad, the Red Devils have grown in confidence that the deal could actually happen if they make a big move.
Matic’s current deal with Antonio Conte’s team will expire in less than two years and at the moment, he is earning (Star) $117,000-a-week.
As per the provided Independent link, the likes of Juve and Inter are interested in the former Benfica midfielder as well but his preferred destination is Manchester United.
