It’s fair to say the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are happy about the recent signing of Nemanja Matic.
Indeed, while the club’s pursuit of the Serbian bruiser seemed to drag on for an age, our resident Red Devils are absolutely delighted to see him arrive at Old Trafford. A Jose Mourinho favourite, our United-mad punters have been crowning their new signing as the man to win them the league.
While he may not be the flashiest arrival, his stoic presence in the engine room will likely free Paul Pogba in a midfield three, giving United & Mourinho an attacking force to be reckoned with behind Romelu Lukaku.
So, he’s proved a relatively popular addition. In fact, even among the United players, it seems.
David De Gea posted a photo of he and the new signing at the club’s training base yesterday, also wishing the 29-year-old a happy birthday.
Hopefully for our United fans, these two form a wall next season that helps Mourinho block out his title challengers.
