Former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has extended his contract with Manchester United until 2025. United on their twitter handle disclosed that the player also has an option for a year extension after the expiration of the contract in 2025. The Serb, 31, joined Manchester United from Chelsea in 2017 when Portuguese Manager Jose Mourinho was in charge. The southpaw is also a key member of the Serbian national team having played 48 times and scored two goals.

Matić began his senior career at Kolubara, before joining Slovak side Košice in 2007. He moved to English club Chelsea for £1.5 million in 2009. Used sparingly during his first spell at Stamford Bridge, he spent the 2010–11 season on loan at Dutch club Vitesse, and in the summer of 2011, he moved to Benfica as part of a swap deal involving David Luiz. He won the Primeira Liga Player of the Year award for his performances in the 2012–13 season. Matić returned to Chelsea in January 2014, for £21 million. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2014–15 season. In July 2017, he was reunited with former Chelsea manager José Mourinho after signing for Manchester United.

Matić represented Serbia at under-21 level. He made his senior international debut in 2008 and has since earned over 40 caps. He was part of their squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
