Manchester United target Nemanja Matic continues to train alone as Pedro begins comeback after concussion

by July 26, 2017 General

Nemanja Matic is continuing his pre-season alone back at Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham as talk of a move to Manchester United continues.

The Serbian was joined by Pedro, who sustained a concussion and facial injuries from David Ospina’s clumsy challenge in the 3-0 friendly win over Arsenal, forcing him to fly home from Beijing.

Eden Hazard, who has been unable to join the Blues on their pre-season tour, was also present as he steps up his comeback.

Antonio Conte’s side are in Singapore for pre-season, where they lost 3-2 to Bayern Munich.

Jose Mourinho has insisted he needs two more sigings and a midfielder is one of them, with the Red Devils lacking a starting calibre holding midfielder.

Matic fits the profile, with a £50m move probable should United continue to struggle to find progress over a deal for Eric Dier.

Pedro, who had started brightly vs Arsenal, will hope to be involved against the Gunners in the Community Shield with his forced exit denying him game time against Bayern and now Inter Milan.

Hazard, who is recovering from an ankle injury, continues to build up his fitness with a September return date pencilled in.
