Man United trigger one-Year extension to keep Matic
Manchester United apparently has triggered the one-year extension clause in the contract of midfielder, Nemanja Matic.
Nemanja Matic joined Manchester United in 2017 and his three-year contract was due to expire this summer. He was signed by then-manager, Jose Mourinho for almost 45 million Euros from Chelsea.
When Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford, Matic was a first-team regular. However, since Solskjaer’s arrival, he has seen his playing time diminish.
That was until the midfield injury crisis struck the Old Trafford. Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were out on injuries. Solskjaer had no choice but to turn to the Serbian to fill the gap.
Although he struggled at first, the 31-year-old Matic has found his best form once again. He has formed a solid partnership with Fred in the middle of the park.
Similarly, the flamboyance of recent arrival, Bruno Fernandes and Matic has become almost undroppable.
The Serbian international has made 109 appearances for the Red Devils. Similarly, he has started nine of the last 10 Premier League games for the club and missed one due to a one-game suspension.
Though the player has never agitated for a move, it was clear he was unhappy being nothing more than an unused sub.
It appears that the club has realized his value to the team and his contribution that the club has warranted him until 2021. Maybe, the club might lengthen his deal even further.
