Nemanja Matic today turned 29, but no time to celebrate as he got down to work at Manchester United after completing 40million switch from Chelsea.
The Serbia international signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils on Monday and started training on Tuesday.
He was seen enjoying his training session with former Chelsea teammate Juan Mata, who moved to Old Trafford in 2014 from Stamford Bridge.
After completing move, Matic said that desire to work again with Jose Mourinho was key factor of his transfer.
“I am delighted to have joined Manchester United. To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” he explained.
“I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training with them.
“This is a very exciting time for the club and I am looking forward to playing my part in creating more history for this great club.” //Actuantes//
