Matic targets Chelsea title

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".

The post Matic targets Chelsea title appeared first on Vanguard News. They have weakened their own team and strengthened Manchester United, who now have a better chance of winning the Premier League than Chelsea.

Chelsea are now preparing for their Premier League opener against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they look to get their title defence off to a winning start. Last season, Antonio Conte led them to their 5th title, and while Matic was a core player alongside N'Golo Kante, it was the Frenchman who ended up with a majority of the credit.

Lampard admits he was somewhat surprised to see Chelsea sell Matic to a direct rival, however, the Blues' all-time top goal-scorer is also backing Bakayoko to have a positive impact at Stamford Bridge this season.

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them".

Chelsea opted to let Matic leave the club this summer after they brought in Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

"Matic has intelligence and experience of the Premier League". He was good in some games, inexperienced in others.

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".

"He looked expensive this time previous year, but maybe that £89m United paid for him is not quite so lavish now, if he can convert his potential into match winning performances this season".

MANCHESTER UNITED have spent big this summer, but has Jose Mourinho missed out on the best talent around?

"I am only 19-years-old and still have a lot to learn and therefore getting the opportunity to play more games on a regular basis will help my development". This year is his year. He was a brilliant midfield player, one of the best in the world, but he kept chasing the ball and vacating areas.

"You get the feeling that Chelsea didn't really want Matic to go, but players can push for a move at times and that is why this deal feels different compared to Petr Cech's move from Chelsea to Arsenal a couple of years back".

"Pogba scored nine goals last season, I think he can get 15".

The England global has revealed his desire to move back north, hinting at a move to Manchester United or Manchester City. "It is a horrendous sale". Thursday's show features Paul Merson and Chris Kamara.
