Matic receives contract extension


Manchester United have exercised their right to trigger a one-year extension on Nemanja Matic’s deal with the English Premier League side. The former Chelsea and Benfica midfielder will keep on playing for the Red Devils until 2021.

Following injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, the 31-year-old Serbian has put in some key performances for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s team and his experience on the pitch has been instrumental in the club’s 11-match unbeaten run.

Meanwhile, the 20-time Premier League champions will no longer hold training at their Carrington base in line with governmental advice over the coronavirus pandemic.
