Picture: Nemanja Matic in Manchester United colours for the first time

Out of absolutely nowhere, news broke that Nemanja Matic is close to becoming Manchester United’s third signing of the summer. The 28-year-old Serbia international is set to join the Red Devils, as he looks to reunite with former boss, Jose Mourinho.

The midfield powerhouse became an integral part of Chelsea’s title winning sides on two occasions, and during his time at Stamford Bridge, the veteran has emerged as one of the best in the business in the holding midfielder role.

Obviously, that’s an area of the park in which we’ve been crying out for some real quality in, and I’ve no doubts that he’ll benefit us massively; particularly in those tight-knit games.

Shortly after the story broke, an image of Matic donning Manchester United’s training kit appeared all over social media – and in our opinion, it looks far too realistic for it to be a fake.

It looks like the kind of photo that he’d snapped himself whilst at Carrington earlier today, and couldn’t help but sending it to a couple of mates out of sheer excitement. With the news surfacing that he’s already had his United medical, it would make sense that these sorts of photos emerge.

Hopefully, a deal will be confirmed soon and he’ll shed some light on the photo himself.
