Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has reportedly let his desire known that he is not willing to extend his stay at the club. The former Chelsea midfield star has long been linked with an exit from Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order under manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær and has been looking for another club he can join as long as he can be promised that he will have more playing time than he is currently getting with the Red Devils.

Matic is already nearing the final few months of his current contract and has not been offered a fresh deal by United as he continues to edge closer to an exit from the club. It was reported some days ago that former Manchester United and Chelsea manager José Mourinho was highly interested in signing the player for AS Roma after recently accepting the Italian club's offer to be their new boss.

Mourinho is a huge fan of Matic after working with him both at Chelsea and Manchester United and he is said to be interested in conjuring a reunion between him and the midfielder. United are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the 33-year-old midfielder and would jump at almost any opportunity to sell him this summer as long as the potential suitors can pay up to what the Red Devils will demand.

United are looking for around a fee between £15 - £20 million for Matic and Mourinho is expected to ask Roma to pay up the amount. Before the end of the last season, it was reported that Matic was attracting interest from clubs abroad, including some from Australia. Wellington Phoenix and Western Sydney Wanderers were said to be interested in signing both him and teammate Mata but there has not been any official offer from neither of the clubs.
