Manchster United has added their final piece to the puzzle. Serbian holding midfielder Nemanja Matic signed from Premier League Champions Chelsea FC for £40m.
The 28 year old will be a perfect addition alongside Paul Pogba in the midfield. Don’t believe it? Matic totaled seven assists in the Premier League last season, more than any other United player!
“I am delighted to have joined Manchester United,” said Matic on the United website.
“To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.”
Matic is a solid, physical midfielder with an engine like a Rolls-Royce. His ability to shutdown key opposition targets in the midfield will allow Pogba breathing room to get forward and make magic in the midfield.
“I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training with them.”
“This is a very exciting time for the club and I am looking forward to playing my part in creating more history for this great club.”
Mourinho’s is not mucking around this season, having already signed defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
