Manchester United fans react to the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea

It’s official, Nemanja Matic is a Manchester United player. The midfield powerhouse, 28, signs for the Red Devils on a three-year deal with the option for an extra year all being well. What a stunning, and underrated acquisition this will be for Jose Mourinho.

The Old Trafford club have lacked that physical midfield presence who’ll just sit in front of the back four and do the dirty work. Although it isn’t an exciting piece of business, it’s one that’ll benefit us massively over the next twelve months and beyond.

I guess that the biggest beneficiary of the move will be Paul Pogba. At times, it felt like the Frenchman was shackled due to not having anyone he could rely upon sitting in behind him. However, that’ll change this term.

Twitter was awash with happy Red Devils’ fans immediately after the signing, and I’m pleased at just how well our fan-base is reacting to bringing in a player signed from a direct rival.

At the end of the day, he strengthens us massively, whilst weakening Chelsea’s depth in such a pivotal area of the field. I’m already praying for a 30-yard screamer against Chelsea when the sides next meet.
