The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been buying the Chelsea fans in the pub drinks all week long as a way of saying thank you for Nemanja Matic…
The Serbian – a star for the Blues last season – was cast aside by Antonio Conte’s team over the summer in an effort to secure a transfer away from the club, with a move to Man Utd eventually coming to fruition.
The move made little sense for Chelsea at the time, and now – a few weeks later – it makes even less sense. Matic enjoyed a fantastic Premier League bow for the Red Devils at the weekend, marshalling the defence with ease and potentially proving himself as Mourinho’s missing link.
Indeed, the fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see him anchor the midfield for years to come, and if Matic gets his way – that will certainly be the case.
Speaking to MUTV (via the official Man Utd website), he said: “Thanks to them [my teammates], I feel very comfortable and I feel like I will be here a long time. They have helped me, and I am happy if I give them something back, and that I helped us to win”.
Matic appears to have settled in very well at Man Utd, and he clearly wants to remain at the club for the long haul.
What is Chelsea’s loss can certainly be Man Utd’s game, and Matic could well be the key man in red this season.
His presence in the midfield at the weekend allowed the likes of Paul Pogba to bomb forward and attack, making them far more efficient.
He is already a fan favourite amongst the supporters in the Transfer Tavern.
