Manchester United have completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for £40m on a three-year deal.
Matic becomes United’s third buy this summer, following defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
United manager Jose Mourinho described Matic as a team player who has everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition.
After completing his move to United, Matic, 28, said he was delighted to be joining at an exciting time.
The Serbia midfielder added: “To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
“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.”
