AS Roma is on the verge of securing the services of Nemanja Matic on a free transfer.
The player will reunite with his former manager at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho in Italy.
Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia claimed that the deal is practically done and only the final details remain to be sorted out.
AS Roma will be his next destination after announcing that he was leaving Old Trafford this summer.
Mourinho already worked with and indeed wanted Matic at Chelsea and then Manchester United.
Football italia claimed that Matic’s agent, Vlado Lemic also has a strong rapport with Roma director of sport Tiago Pinto.
AS Roma opted for the 33-year-old midfielder after news Henrikh Mkhitaryan had rejected the latest contract extension and would join Serie A rivals Inter as a free agent.
It is believed to be a one-year contract with option to extend for the 2023-24 campaign.
