Manchester United have started the season on fire this year, romping to three straight wins in the Premier League and looking every bit like champions elect.
Under Jose Mourinho the club have gradually built up a cracking squad full of top players who should be challenging on all fronts come the end of the campaign.
However, our landlord here in the Tavern thinks one particular signing this summer could be the one who brings success to United, and it’s not someone who is going to score 30 goals a season either.
That man? Former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.
The Serbian was picked up by Mourinho for around £40m, with the player being deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge. He is however the perfect signing for United, and looks to be exactly what they needed.
He will be able to sit in front of the defence, and this ultimately will release the shackles of off star midfield turn Paul Pogba – who is already showing what he can do in the right system.
Matic is a quality act, and was one of the key components in Chelsea romping to the league title last season.
It would be no surprise to see Matic once again win the Premier League title this season with United and reaffirm his status as one of the best holding midfield players in world football.
United fans, what do you think to Matic so far? Impressed? Let us know your thoughts!
