NEMANJA MATIC has responded to an Instagram post making fun of a potential reunion with new Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.
The Serbian midfielder, was brought to Manchester United by Mourinho after the pair shared a good relationship at Chelsea.
Matic responded to the Pablo Escobar waiting meme with laughing and clapping emojis, which has gone down well with some United fans who are keen to see him leave Old Trafford after struggling to get into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
Matic has only made five appearances this season in all competitions.
Although it all appears to be a joke, there are rumours about the 31-year-old moving to London to team up with Mourinho again as the new Spurs boss looks to rebuild the team and help them challenge for the top four again after slipping to 14th in the league.
Matic signed for United in 2017 for £40m but has struggled to make an impression since Solskjaer took over.
It is also being reported that Inter Milan are showing an interest in the defensive midfielder.
The Serbian may also look to leave to ensure he has a chance of playing at Euro 2020 with his nation set to take part in the play-offs for next year's tournament.

If Solskjaer does look to offload Matic, it's clear it will be in January to avoid letting him go on a free transfer when his contract expires in June.
Mourinho also has the task of trying to convince Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld to stay with all three being linked with moves away from North London.
Spurs could be set for a busy January transfer window and had already started preparing before sacking Pochettino. They have just had a £1.75m bid turned town for teenage Peterborough forward Ricky Jade-Jones.
