And it showed; the Frenchman notched two goals and two assists in his opening four Premier League games, before succumbing to a nasty hamstring injury.

Unfortunately, the emergence of Matic means fan favourite Ander Herrera has found it increasingly difficult to get game time at the club.

For much of this season, the 28-year-old has found himself occupying the bench and has only recently started a succession of games thanks to injuries to Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.

Crikey, imagine being behind him in the pecking-order.

With the Spaniard out of contract next summer, it looks like he might start looking for a new club – with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid reportedly very interested.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Atleti believe they can convince Herrera to return to Spain next season, with manager Diego Simeone keen to add some extra quality to his midfield.

Simeone wants him

The former Bilbao star has had a somewhat on-and-off spell in Manchester, having struggled under Louis van Gaal’s management and often being rotated by Mourinho.

However, he emerged as a key player during their Europa League campaign last season and was even named United’s Player of the Season.

For what it’s worth, Mourinho wants to keep Herrera at the club and could exercise the automatic renewal clause in his contract that will extend his deal to an extra year.
