Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic wants to hold talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his lack of first-team football so far this season, according to the Daily Star.
The Serbian international has been an unused substitute in all three of United’s matches in the Premier League and the midfielder wants to get clarity about his future role with the club.
Some supporters on Twitter wouldn’t be against Matic leaving while others think he should knuckle down and fight for his place in the side:
tell him he can leave in the summer

The best way is to keep training, stay healthy and fit. When needed then he will be called upon. In the meantime, enjoy the bench and paycheck.

He has been awful he can depart but when we get a good replacement.

He hasn’t been good since the first half of his first season and he is wondering how he has lost his starting spot

One touch football. Snappy passing. Releasing the ball early. That's the best way to regain his starting place. Man plays like he has 10min on the ball like he's all alone

Train hard. Take your chance when you get your next game. Simple.

Another player that should have been replaced with quality in summer. Needs to improve. Plays like he’s 41 not 31

Move to another club, it’s Garner’s time

Matic performed well during his first season at the club following his £40m switch from Chelsea, but he was poor last season, and the emergence of Scott McTominay has meant the 31-year-old is no longer a key first-team player.
With McTominay adding more energy and dynamism to United’s midfield, it’s hard to see how the Serbian gets back in the side unless the Scottish international gets injured.
