Manchester United fans mixed on the news that £40m powerhouse could join club

Earlier today, news surfaced that Manchester United are close to signing Nemanja Matic for a reported fee of £40million. The 28-year-old was signed by Jose Mourinho back in January 2014 whilst he was Chelsea boss, and since then, the Serbia international has won two league titles.

It seems like Mourinho wants to bring in a more defensive-minded midfielder, probably to give some extra protection to the back four, whilst also allowing Paul Pogba to get in more advanced positions.

For me, he’d be a definite upgrade on Marouane Fellaini, which can only be a good thing. The fact that he has Premier League experience is vital. He knows how football works in England, and that’d allow him to fit in seamlessly at the Theatre of Dreams.

With that said, the Manchester United fans were split regarding the prospect of signing Matic from Chelsea. Some think he’ll be a wonderful acquisition, whereas others seem to be enjoying moaning about the fee…

In my opinion, Matic has been the signing we’ve been crying out for. At the end of the day, we have to trust Mourinho. So far, the self-proclaimed Special One has gotten all of his signings correct, and until that changes, he has my backing 100%.
