According to a report by Manchester Evening News, Nemanja Matic has indicated that he is open to spending more time at Old Trafford.
The midfielder’s current deal will expire at the end of the campaign, but it does include the option to trigger a 12-month extension, the report adds. In the wake of injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been pressed for numbers in the midfield.
However, Nemanja Matic has grabbed the opportunity with both hands even put in a spectacular display versus Chelsea as the Red Devils romped to a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge – which is, incidentally, the ground of his former club.
Notwithstanding being out-of-favour for a good majority of the campaign, the Serbian appears to have breathed a new lease life into his tenure with Manchester United.
A few months ago, the prospect of tying Nemanja Matic down to new terms might have seemed unnecessary, but after his recent displays, the Manchester United hierarchy would be wise to consider their stance on the midfielder’s future.
He is easily one of the more experienced figures in the Manchester United dressing room, having spent a good number of years with rivals, Chelsea.
