The England worldwide has revealed his desire to move back north, hinting at a move to Manchester United or Manchester City.

Manchester United have spent the biggest transfer fee this summer so far after signing Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton following Victor Lindelof's arrival from Benfica.

But the Italian, with Matic keen on working with Mourinho once again, was eventually forced into letting the Serbian complete a transfer to United last week.

And Scholes reckons the 28-year-old hopes that he will allow other players to flourish by giving the likes of Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan extra freedom.

Discussing the deal, Fosu-Mensah said: "The manager spoke to me about coming down to join Crystal Palace and it was clear that he wanted me to be part of his squad which as a player gives you a great feeling straight away".

With plenty of time until deadline day, The Grapevine has the very latest football transfer news from the Premier League's top clubs in our round-up below. He is probably the best in England alongside N'Golo Kante.

"They have weakened their own team and strengthened Manchester United, who now have a better chance of winning the Premier League than Chelsea".

And Lampard has expressed his surprise at seeing Chelsea such an important player to a rival.

Matic played in the defensive midfield position he had played so superbly for Chelsea and instantly made United look a more effective and dynamic unit, albeit a class below their illustrious Spanish opponents.

"Is Tiemoue Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic?"

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

On the eve of the first Saturday of the new Premier League season, it is always worth consulting the mood of each camp before the marathon begins.

"It takes time, I know that from experience of going to United at a young age".
