Man Utd Transfer News: Matic dig at Chelsea, Shaw contract claim, Bonaventure Dennis eyed

Nemanja Matic has taken a dig at former club Chelsea by claiming he is at the biggest club of his career.

Matic quit Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford in a £40m deal last month after being frozen out by Antonio Conte.

When asked if United are the biggest club he’s played for, Matic told Sky Sports: ”Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about.

“When you say , it is different. Also Chelsea is a big club, Benfica are the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester.

“When I came here for the first day, I could feel that the people at the club help you every day if you need something and supporters are very important for this club.

“After every training session, they are waiting for us outside the training ground to take pictures, to give a signature so I think the club is one of the biggest in the world.

“Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure.”

Luke Shaw is set to be handed a contract extension.

The 22-year-old has entered the final season of his current deal.

United can trigger a 12-month extension and The Times claim they are expected to do so.

Shaw is nearing a return to full fitness.

He has been out since April due to ligament damage but Jose Mourinho thinks he will be available next month.
