Mourinho: “Matic promised to make move from Chelsea to Manchester United happen”

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic was keen on a move to Old Trafford and to reunite with his former boss at Stamford Bridge as he told him that he wanted to leave his club ahead of a permanent move.

“I didn’t think it was possible unless something special was happening – he told MUTV on Tuesday – Matic last March in 2017 told me: ‘I want to play for you and play for Manchester United and I’m going to do it,’ and he made it happen”.

Matic joined the Red Devils on a £40m bid in the summer transfer window.
