Manchester United fans were absolutely delighted when club announced signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for £40 million. Matic signed three year deal with United, which will reunite him with his former manager Jose Mourinho. Earlier United were interested in Monaco’s Fabinho, but Matic is surely a better choice than him.
United needed a defensive midfielder desperately, and in Matic they have got one of the best in the world. Addition of Matic will make United’s midfield more dynamic. He will provide much needed protection to their defence line. Matic is known for his brilliant ability to win the ball back, he also excels at passing and dribbling. He will occupy deep role in midfield playing behind Pogba and Herrera. Last season Pogba was criticised by many pundits for his poor defensive display, but Matic’s presence will surely take a lot of pressure of him, and will alow him to play his natural game.
In Matic and Lukakau United have signed two experienced Premier League players, which indicates that Jose Mourinho is looking for immediate effect. United are certainly looking strong with arrival of Matic, and his presence will surely help United to challenge for Premier League.
