Man Utd sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea

Manchester United have completed the signing of defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea.

The 28-year-old has signed a three-year contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2020. United have the option to extend the deal for a further year until June 2021.

Neither United nor Chelsea have confirmed the fee involved, but it is thought to be in the region of £40m.

Earlier we brought you a leaked image that seemed to suggest Matic had undergone a medical at Carrington yesterday. It now appears that was the case.

The Serbia international is reunited with his former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who paid £21m to bring him back to Stamford Bridge from Benfica in January 2014.
