Former Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes has spoken of his faith in new signing Nemanja Matic, and questioned why Chelsea allowed him to leave.

Matic made a decision to call time on his second spell at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea emerged victorious in their chase of ex-Monaco man Tiemoue Bakayoko.

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".

"If Chalobah or Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid".

The Serbian brought a level of physicality to United's midfield and exhibited his passing abilities.

"But [Conte] spoke about him in such a way about his incredible importance to the job they did past year - Matic and N'Golo Kante in front of that back three - and I have no doubt that he has not sanctioned that move, he is not happy with it and ultimately he is uncomfortable with it".

The Serbia worldwide joined former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho at Manchester United for £40 million.

"But he [Antonio Conte] spoke about him in such a way about his incredible importance to the job they did a year ago, Matic and N'Golo Kante in front of that back three". All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League.

Chelsea secured the services of Bakayoko from Monaco and still has Kante on his roster.

"Costa has not left yet, but they are going to lose him, they have lost Matic, they have lost John Terry - if you think Costa, Matic and Terry are going out of a changing room, that takes some replacing". However, Neville does not seem convinced by the 22 year-old Frenchman. Is Tiemoue Bakayoko, a £35million signing, a similar type of player to Matic? Will he gel alongside Kante? As you know the Premier League is the main target.

"Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year".

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
