Nemanja Matic reunite with Jose Mourinho on a 3-year-deal

Manchester United have completed the signing of Serbian Midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea on a three year deal.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder reunite with manager Jose Mourinho for a fee in the region of £40m.

Jose Mourinho brought Nemanja Matic to Chelsea in January 2014 before the manager left to join Manchester United and now reunite with his anchor defensive midfielder.

Matic becomes Jose Mourinho third signing of the summer after acquiring the services of Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof from Everton and Benfica respectively.

The Serbian defensive midfielder said he couldn't turn down the opportunity work with Jose Mourinho once again.

Matic said, "To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn't turn down. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start with them."

"This is a very exciting time for the club and I am looking forward to playing my part in creating more history for this great club.. I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support."
Mourinho said: "Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player. He represents everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition, team player."
"I would like to thank him for his desire to join us because without that, it would be impossible to have him here. I am sure our players and supporters will love him. A big welcome to our new number 31."
Jose Mourinho said sometime last month that he need at least four signing if possible and the club have already signed three players and they will be looking to land their top target Perisic from Inter Milan.
