Nemanja Matic

Di Marzio has said that he has signed a new contract at United until 2023.

I thought he had already signed a new contract earlier in the year.

We triggered his option of an extra year.

I hope those nob head Glazers don’t think this allows them not to spend on another midfielder this season.

I don't think we were going to bring in a midfielder anyway this summer, yet again.

The closest thing we could bring in to one is Grealish although he's not really a midfielder and I'm not even sure we'll go for him.

CB is priority surely

6 months ago, I would have been livid at this news. Now i think it is good news

matic is not perfect and also had a bad run of form. But my (and i think most people's) biggest gripe against him was he made the midfield cumbersome. I couldn't help but see him as a relic from mourinho type football in the same way i saw fellaini as symbolic of every problem under moyes.

watching him play alongside pogba+bruno I see a player reborn. And has someone said his experience will be useful for our younger dms be it McT, Garner or someone else

Matic throughout his United career has tended to go through sporadic periods of good form and then drop off again.

I'm waiting for the next drop. On form though he's a very useful player to have.

I think his drops in form are due to being knackered. He covers a lot of ground, for someone not blessed with a great deal of speed. So if he isn't rotated, I think he will go through another dip. His recent good form has coincided with lengthy periods of rest

He was garbage on the weekend though, put bailly in a bad position to give the pen away and have the ball away consistently in the first half.

Been better since Fernandes signed though, but who hasn’t? Strikes me as one of those who plays when during contract negotiations.

Probably done it to secure his value in case we see interest this summer and decide to replace him.

Alternatively, we have a role model of an intelligent, highly experienced player with a superb attitude on the bench, in the dressing room and on the training ground for the next few seasons.

It’s a Mata of an extension. Great person to have around the club for the kids.
