Nemanja Matic TEAMtalk

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Nemanja Matic has agreed a new deal to stay at Manchester United.

The 31-year-old has been crucial to United in the last few months with Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba missing through injury.

Matic has started nine of the last 10 Premier League games and has look revitalised after seemingly looking like his Old Trafford career was done.

It has been a remarkable turn of fortune for the Serbia international, and while he is yet to sign the deal, Solskjaer has revealed the deal has been agreed.

Solskjaer said: “He will stay here. Yeah, 100 per cent. We have agreed with him so he will stay.”

Matic is out of contract in the summer and free to speak to foreign teams about a free-transfer move in the summer, but his new deal is likely to be announced this week.

The Daily Mirror claims it could be a two-year extension having impressed so much in the last few months.

Speaking to Serbian newspaper Telegraf in January Matic explained that he was unsure as to his short-term future at United.




“I do not know what to say, I have another six months left on my contract, we will see what will happen in January,” he said.

“Maybe I will renew, or I will find something different.

“United have an option to extend my current contract, but we will see if the club’s plans match mine.

“I cannot say anything else because I do not really know anything else.”
