Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has withdrawn from Serbia's squad for their forthcoming internationals due to injury.

Matic was in line to play UEFA Nations League games against Montenegro and Romania but on Tuesday returned to Manchester for assessment by medical staff at Carrington.

Shaw's been United's best player by a country mile this season, but the left-back suffered a knock during their 3-2 win over Newcastle United and was forced to withdraw from Gareth Southgate's England squad. The Reds have been linked with the Serb for the last two seasons, and Pogba leaving United to join Barcelona, Juventus or Paris Saint-Germain would give them the need and the funds to buy Milinkovic-Savic.

Matic's injury is the latest blow for Manchester United, who have endured a hard start to the campaign, with concerns over Mourinho's position at the club.

He is a doubt for their next Premier League clash which is against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on October 20.

The 30-year-old has made eight appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho's side this season, but could miss the chance to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after the global break.

And their next game after the worldwide break is a big one, against Matic's former side Chelsea, to make matters more interesting.
