Just last night, there were whispers of a new Nemanja Matic contract from the usually excellent Gianluca Di Marzio.
Well, those rumours turned out to be true, with Manchester United officially confirming the deal this morning.
The Serbian has put pen on paper on terms that’ll see him remain at Old Trafford until 2023, by which point he’ll be 35.
You have to say that Matic has been supremely impressive recently, with the midfield enforcer becoming the perfect complement to the Paul Pogba/Bruno Fernandes pivot which is greatly flourishing just ahead of him.
As you can see from the picture below, Matic is looking pretty suave in his suit, all-smiles, as his future is now secure:
Upon signing his new deal, Nemanja Matic said:
“I am very happy that I will continue to be part of this great club.
“As a player, I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Manchester United will be a huge honour.
“This is a really exciting team to be part of, we have a good balance of youth and experience within the squad and there is great comradery amongst the group.
“This is a key part of the season and we are playing well. We will continue to fight to finish the season on a high and make our amazing supporters proud.”
Ole Gunnar Solskajer added:
“I am delighted that Nemanja has signed a new contract, I know his experience, professionalism and leadership will be invaluable to this young talented group.
“We have great strength in midfield and Nemanja’s attributes are a key part of that. Nemanja has been here for three seasons now and really understands the values of playing for Manchester United.
“He remains hugely ambitious and determined which will be vital as we look to achieve our aims over the coming years.”
