Manchester United could be forced to give Nemanja Matic a new deal to cope with their injury crisis in midfield.
The Serbian, 31, has just six months remaining on his contract and is free to discuss terms with other teams in January. His departure from the club has long been on the cards but United could now make a U-turn given their current strife.
According to the Sun, United have told Matic's representatives that they intend to trigger his 12-month extension.
