OFFICIAL: Matic joins Manchester United

Manchester United officially announce Matic signing

Manchester United officially announced the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea.

On Monday, Manchester United officially announced the signing of 28-year-old midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The Serbian, one of Mourinho’s top targets, signs a three-year deal with the Red Devils which could be extended by one year.

Jose Mourinho said about the former Chelsea man: ‘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. A big welcome to our new number 31’.

Matic already worked under the Portuguese manager at Stamford Bridge, and he admitted it was a factor in the transfer: ‘I am delighted to have joined Manchester United. To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down’.

‘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’.
