Nemanja Matic has signed a new deal with Red Devils that will extend his current contract by two years, keeping the midfielder at Theatre of Dreams until 2023. Serbia international had interest from several teams, including from Italy, but ultimately chose to re-commit with Man United and be a part of the exciting team they’re building.
Nemanja has been in rejuvenated form, particularly since Bruno Fernandes’ arrival, Man United triggered an option to extend the midfielder’s contract until 2021 earlier this year and have now gone a step further. Matic is exactly the kind of experienced head that can flourish for the club behind creative maestros like Pogba and Bruno.
The 31-year-old midfielder, whose been with Man United for four years after joining from Blues, is still an important first-team footballer and can be a fine mentor to both Fred and especially Scott McTominay.
The Serbian midfielder has played 27 games across all tournaments this campaign, tying Nemanja down for the next three years is a wise decision by the Red Devils the new deal isn’t too long for a footballer of his age.
This also protects Man United from losing Nemanja anytime soon on a free transfer, personally, the ace can continue to play at the top level for the foreseeable future.
Nemanja said: “I am very happy that I will continue to be part of this great club. As a player, I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Man United will be a huge honour.”
