Premier League giants Manchester United completed the signing of Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for a fee of £40 Million this week. This means that we will be seeing the player reunite with his former manager Jose Mourinho.
The signing has received good response from the Red Devils fan base and they are looking forward to see Matic play for them in the Premier League.
The former Chelsea man made his debut for his new club on Wednesday against Sampdoria. He was named in the Manchester United starting line-up and was subbed of at the half time mark.
Matic showed what he could do in the first 45 five minutes of his Manchester United career and the fans are even more excited.
The signing of Matic is not only about the Red Devils needing a solid defensive mid-fielder, it is also about getting the best out of Premier League’s costliest player Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman, who was bought for a very hefty price from Juventus last season, was termed as a flop by many despite his good performances.
It has to be noted that Paul Pogba was not given the freedom last season that he used to get at Juventus and also it was his first season in the Premier League. Any player will find it difficult to adapt in such situations and if you look closely Pogba has done a great job.
A potential fearsome trio in the making
Now with the signing of Matic, we could see some changes in the role of Pogba.
We could see a midfield three of Matic, Ander Herrera and Pogba in United’s starting eleven. Matic and Herrera will be playing in a deep role, with Paul Pogba paying freely in the front.
This trio is perfect for Manchester United, as the three players are very good at what they do. And a freely playing Pogba is a very big threat to the opposition.
The quality charger to the iPhone that is Pogba
This could be the season in which we could see the reason why Manchester United paid such a huge amount for the former Juventus player.
In a nutshell the purchase of Nemanja Matic by Manchester United can be summed up as, ‘Buying a quality charger to make sure that your iPhone works well’.
