It looks as though Manchester United could be on the verge of sealing their third signing of the summer. Things are moving pretty quickly, and according to the usually reliable James Ducker, the Serbia international will have his medical today, and he could be announced as a Red Devil either today or tomorrow.
Ducker does add that in all likelihood, he’ll be confirmed as our latest signing tomorrow. It’s nice to see that things are finally moving in the right direction in terms of new players. Following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, we’ve had a bit of a lull in proceedings.
Fee was agreed with Chelsea y'day for Matic. Having medical today. Announcement today or tomo. More likely tomo at this stage #mufc

I’m sure that Jose Mourinho has asked the club to do whatever it takes to get it done, because we’re at that point when the season is starting soon, and Matic needs time to integrate into life in a new city, playing with new players.
He’ll probably get the chance to start against Sampdoria on Wednesday night, and then all being well, he’ll play against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
Personally, I cannot wait to see him in action. This is a man who’ll bring combativeness and physicality to the midfield, whilst offering some extra protection to the back four. He loves doing the dirty work and that’s something we’ve been crying out for.
