Manchester United are reported to be at the head of a prominent pack, which includes Chelsea and Real Madrid, in pursuit of Nemanja Matic, and a deal could be clinched for the Benfica player in January.

Portuguese newspaper Record claims the Premier League champions are the most likely candidates to secure the signing of Matic, as David Moyes bids to reinforce his midfield when the transfer window opens.

The Manchester United manager has been credited with a sustained scouting brief on the Serbia international, although Moyes will have to spend big if he hopes to bring Matic to Old Trafford.

Benfica have reportedly inserted a release clause into the player's contract to the tune of €50 million, and it remains to be seen if Manchester United can negotiate a lower fee.

As speculation intensifies about a proposed move to Manchester for the 25-year-old, here is something to whet the appetite - the stunning goal scored by Matic last season against Porto, which was recently nominated for the FIFA Puskas Award.
