Serbian defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic (28) will play for coach Jose Mourinho again, who led him while he was in Chelsea.
On Wednesday the British media announced that all details regarding Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United are agreed upon and that the Serbian representative has yet to do a medical examination.
The value of the transfer is €45 million, and Matic would have an annual salary of €8.7 million in United.
Matic came to Chelsea in 2014 from Benfica for €24 million, since Mourinho insisted on bringing him. He was in the first 11 the whole time, but now coach Antonio Conte no longer counts on him, as Monaco’s Tiemoué Bakayoko is coming to Chelsea.
