NEMANJA MATIC is set for a Chelsea exit after sitting out the pre-season tour with Diego Costa.

The Manchester United and Juventus target will not travel to China and Singapore with his teammates next week.

Antonio Conte is giving the Serbian midfielder a chance to sort out his future, with Costa still in Brazil as he discusses an Atletico Madrid return.

Matic reported for training with the rest of the Blues squad but spent much of his time alone.

United boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign the ex-Benfica playmaker but Chelsea are reluctant to strengthen a rival.
