Manchester United have completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea on a three-year deal for a fee believed to £40 million.
The 28-year-old defensive midfielder was deemed excess to require at Stamford Bridge with the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko and now rejoins manager Jose Mourinho, who brought him to Chelsea in 2014. The Serbian becomes Manchester United's third signing of the summer after the arrival of Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof. Matic will be expected to operate in a holding midfield role alongside Ander Herrera, thus allowing Paul Pogba to play in a more advanced position. Speaking on his newest signing, Mourinho said: "Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player. He represents everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition, team player. I would like to thank him for his desire to join us because without that, it would be impossible to have him here. I am sure our players and supporters will love him." Jul 31 - 2:39 PM
