Chelsea and Manchester United have become recent rivals in the modern football and the two clubs rarely sell players to one another. Nemanja Matic is the latest player to join Manchester United from Chelsea but is he the only one to play for both clubs?
Let's take a look at players who have worn jerseys for both clubs.
Many could have denied that there is a chance of a Blue becoming Red especially with the recent frustrations Chelsea received from United. Romelu Lukaku looked set to joined the Blues but Jose Mourinho, out of nowhere joined the race and with days Lukaku was a Red Devil. Matic joined Manchester United from Chelsea for a fee of £40m on Monday after winning two league titles, the FA Cup and the League at Stamford Bridge.
Who saw it coming? The Spaniard, who won the Champions League with Chelsea now plays for Man United.
The Colombian who flopped in England played for both clubs. He joined Man United but things didn’t go his way, he then headed to Chelsea to rediscover his form but neither did it work.
Juan Sebastian Veron
The Argentine was one of brilliant midfielders, his two year stay as a Red Devil didn’t match his signature, because United made him the most expensive player in English football when he joined them. In 2003 he moved to the Bridge, played a handful of games but spent most of his time as Chelsea player on loan in Italy and Argentina.
The current Stoke City manager, still a legend at both clubs. Helped Man United become dominant force of the early Premier League years before moving to Chelsea. He helped the Blues on the road to become a team good enough to eventually catch the eye of the one Roman Abramovich, now you know why fans still love him.
The Australian goalkeeper was supposed to replace Peter Schmeichel at Man United when he signed in 1999 unfortunately he did not.
Parker was at Old Trafford for five years and an integral part of the 1994 Double-winning side. He left United and joined Chelsea in 1997 only to end up playing just four games for the Blues.
