Manchester United have completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for a fee of £40m.
I am delighted to have joined Manchester United. To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training 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.

Chelsea will now hope to replace Matic with another midfielder. We are currently linked with Renato Sanches, with a potential loan transfer commencing.
