Manchester United have announced the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea on a three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
-Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player. He represents everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition, team player. Iwould 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, Mourinho said.
-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, the new signing said.
The 28-year-old Serbian international midfielder has won a number of club and individual honours including league titles in both England and Portugal.
