Following his transfer on a three-year deal from Chelsea to Manchester United, Nemanja has insisted the decision to move was an easy one for him. 

I feel great. Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I am very happy because I am now part of this great club, part of this great group. I am looking forward to start to train with the team and to start to play the games.

Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Also, my wish was to train with Jose and, of course, when you have a coach like him and a club like Manchester is, you don’t need to think a lot so my decision was very easy.

It is clear that Mourinho played a big part in Matic being so keen to join United with the midfielder talking of his happiness at being reunited with our manager.

I am very happy because we will work again together. He is a great coach and, when I worked with him before, he always took the best from me and I improve if I work with him, so I am very happy to be again with him, especially in this great club so I am happy because of that.

When the coach wants you to come to the club, it gives you more motivation, more possibility and I will try to, not try, I will, for sure, give my best to show that I deserve to be in this club and part of this group.
