Matic signs for Manchester United from Chelsea

03 Agosto 2017, 01:28 | Cornelio Vivanco

Manager Jose Mourinho expressed his delight at signing the midfielder by telling United's website: "Nemanja is a United player and a Mourinho player".

The Serb could make his debut against Sampdoria in Dublin tomorrow or in the Uefa Super Cup against Real Madrid next week.

Matic should add power and physicality to United's midfield, and his arrival could free up Paul Pogba in an attacking sense.

Nemanja Matic has been long linked with a move away from Chelsea and the closest he was linked to was Manchester United, even though Juventus too were interested in his services.

Think pre-season is a waste of time? I'm looking forward to training with the team and playing the games. "That's why today he coped with the 45 minutes well".

"I'm very happy because we will work again together".

With many Red Devil fans happy about the relatively young age of the squad and the exciting times ahead, it still made sense to bring in a little experience in the form of a Premier League victor.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened the scoring for United at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, and Juan Mata netted the victor nine minutes from time after Dennis Praet had equalised for Sampdoria.

"It's easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane", he said.

"Everybody is in the plan - the plan is not to have a good team, but a good squad, with options", he said.

Not to mention, the player is seeking a leadership role at the club, something he's quite capable of doing. [Morgan] Schneiderlien was let go, [Bastian] Schweinsteiger didn't get a game and so they need a replacement in there and Matic fits the bill. Both of them are great players who will help Manchester to reach our targets.

"Lukaku, Martial, Rashford - they are all different players and we need everybody. So the squad is good".

Mourinho said: "Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player". "It was nice to play in front of our supporters - I think there was a full stadium of Manchester supporters". I think adaptation will be quick. United are one of the best in Europe, for sure.
