Manchester United’s move for Nemanja Matic has been confirmed. The Serbia star has joined the club on a three-year deal from Chelsea, and he’ll be tasked with playing as the defensive midfielder for the Red Devils this season. A rather unexciting signing, but a necessary one.
With that in mind, we’re continuing our Matic coverage with a potential starting line-up containing the 28-year-old, nicely sitting at the base of our midfield. Before we even get into the team, it already looks so much better purely due to the defensive diligence that he offers.
Have a look at the starting XI including Matic here:
This is our strongest XI in our opinion, and my, it looks like a team capable of winning the Premier League title. You have world-class players like David de Gea and Paul Pogba, top professionals like Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia and stunning talents like Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial.
Then, we have the main man Nemanja Matic. He’ll just sit in front of the back four doing all the dirty work for 90 minutes, and the whole team will feel the benefits of having a player like him in the side.
You can see exactly what Jose Mourinho is trying to build. The gaffer loves, tall, strong and physically imposing footballers, and the spine we have now will cause all sorts of problems for our rivals.
I certainly cannot wait for the serious stuff to get started now, because we’re looking a whole lot better already, and this is all before Matic has even kicked a ball for us!
