Nemanja Matic willing to return to Roma

Former Roma midfielder Nemanja Matic is reportedly willing to consider a surprise return to the Italian capital.

The Serbian veteran – who left Roma in a surprise turn of events near the end of the summer window – is said to have had a major falling out with Rennes, the club he joined on a permanent deal from the Giallorossi in August.

Initial reports from France claimed Matic quit the team’s WhatsApp group and emptied his locker in sign of protest against Rennes’ management. Now, the player could ask for a transfer.

According to Leggo, Matic has even gone as far as offering himself back to Roma. The ex-Man United man is reportedly willing to return to Mourinho’s orders in January.

Roma, however, could sign Matic or any other midfielder such as Barcelona’s Oriol Romeu (who’s been recently linked with the Giallorossi) only in case Renato Sanches were to depart the club in the coming weeks. For the time being, the Portuguese midfielder has not accepted any of the proposals that have come his way.
