He Is Staying! Man United Want To Offer This Star Player A New Contract


Manchester United have triggered a clause to extend midfielder Nemanja Matic’s contract by one year.

The 31-year-old, whose three-year contract was due to expire this summer, is also in talks with the club over lengthening the deal even further.

Matic’s recent form has encouraged United to extend his stay to 2021 and the Serb could remain beyond that.

Matic has made 109 appearances for the Old Trafford club since joining from Chelsea in a £40m deal in 2017.

Manchester United have extended the contract of midfielder Nemaja Matic until 2021.

Matic, 31, had entered the final 12 months of his existing deal but the club have triggered an option in his contract to keep him at Old Trafford for another year.

The Serbia international struggled to hold down a regular place in the team at the start of the season and said he was unsure if he remain at united next season

But injuries to Paul pogba and Scott McTominay enabled Matic to return to the side and become a fixture in United's 11-match unbeaten run, before the world of football was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

At the start of March, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told a news conference: "He will stay here. Yeah, 100%. We have agreed with him so he will stay."

Meanwhile, United will no longer hold training at their Carrington base in line with governmental advice over the coronavirus.

The government urged the country on Monday to avoid gatherings and crowded places.

European football has been heavily affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The champions League and Europa League have been suspended while the Premier League is also on hold until April 3 at the earliest.
