Man United have extend Nemanja Matic's contract by a year by exercising a clause in the 31-year-old's contract. Nemanja Matic was a regular starter for Jose Mourinho but fell down the pecking order when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got appointed at Man United's helm. This season has been a roller coaster ride for Matic so far. He was missing from Man United's playing XI for almost half of the season until the Red Devils met with a serious midfielder crisis. However, Nemanja Matic has started 9 times in Man United's last 10 games and he will now stay with United till 2021.
Nemanja Matic has played a key role in helping Man United find their lost form this season. Man United are unbeaten in their last 11 games and Nemanja Matic has been an impressive part of the Man United midfield in those games. As reported by SkySports, Man United are not ready to let go of the player for at least a year now. However, Nemanja Matic's playing time will be under threat once Paul Pogba is fit to play. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to opt for Bruno Fernandes, Scott Mctominay and Paul Pogba in the midfield. Nemanja Matic has made a total of 109 appearances for Man United and has 4 goals.
