EPL: Matteo Advises Man United To Sign Chelsea Star as Herrera’s Replacement.
Former Liverpool defender, Dominic Matteo, has advised Manchester United to sign Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante as Ander Herrera’s replacement at the club.
Herrera is set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, after growing frustrated with Manchester United’s offer.
The midfielder reportedly reached a pre-contract agreement with the French champions and will join them July 1.
The 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and was demanding a big increase to his current £130,000-a-week salary, to stay with the Old Trafford giants.
Man United refused to sanction Herrera’s £200,000-a-week wage demands, despite PSG’s attempts to land the Spanish midfielder on a free transfer.
Matteo believes Solskjaer’s side should sign Kante because he is currently the “best holding midfielder in the world”.
[N’Golo] Kante’s been playing in that position for Chelsea, Matteo said on the Man On The Street show.
But it doesn’t look like he’s going to get a game there in front of Jorginho.
For United, he would definitely be top of the list.
Matteo added: Kante is probably the best holding midfielder in world football.
If United play Herrera and [Nemanja] Matic together, there’s not enough creativity.
One player should sit and control things as the rest of them get forward.
The top sides need to get players in the box.
