The Nemanja Matic transfer to Manchester United is moving on apace this afternoon. As Merlin reported earlier it was believed the negotiations between the clubs was being slowed while the two argued over bonus payments.

However, The Manchester Evening News are reporting a medical has now taken place at the clubs Carrington training complex and a move is imminent. It could be announced as early as this evening.

The Serb has been keen on the move since the end of last season but a number of complications stalled the deal. The whole Romelu Lukaku saga mixed in with time it took to get the Bakayoko deal done slowed Matic`s exit.

The Sun report that an initial fee of £40m has been agreed along with bonus payments totalling another £10m. Interestingly there is also a picture of Matic wearing a United training top circulating on social media.

Obviously the possibility of a photoshop expert at play is possible and ESPN explore the possiblities.

It`s time this deal was put to bed. As Chelsea appear keen to be self-financing in the transfer market, that money could get another incoming signing closer to being done.
