Former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic joined Manchester United last summer for a fee of about £40million.
Following comments made by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho at United’s Player of the Year awards, it seems Nemanja Matic forced the force to Manchester United last summer.
Mourinho revealed Matic told him in March 2017 that he wants to join Manchester United. The discussions could have taken place during the FA Cup victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in March 2017.
“In March 2017, Matic told me: ‘I want to play for you, I want to play for Manchester United and I’m going to do it.'” Mourinho told MUTV.
“And he made it happen. He’s been very consistent for the balance of the team.”
