I probably wasn’t alone in thinking that, come to the end of the season, Manchester United and Nemanja Matic would be parting company.
Matic was struggling to get game-time and the 31-year-old, with his contract coming to an end, looked to be heading for the exit door.
However, in recent weeks, there has been a remarkable transformation in the Serbian’s fortunes with the midfielder having started 13 of the last 17 games as Manchester United’s season has taken a turn for the better.
As a result, the Manchester Evening News are reporting that such has been the impressiveness of Matic’s return to form the club has agreed on a new deal with the midfielder, a deal that will surely quash any thoughts other clubs may have of making a move for the player when the summer transfer window opens.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we’re hoping that Matic can continue in the rich vein of form he is currently in and becomes a permanent fixture in the Old Trafford midfield rather than basking in the security a new deal brings and suffering another drop-off in performances.
Are United Right To Offer Matic A New Deal?
