Ex-Chelsea midfielder Andy Townsend has labeled Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic as the most incredible signing of the summer.
Manchester United made headlines this summer with the £75million signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton and while the Belgian international has started life at Old Trafford in fine fashion with three goals in as many games, it has to be said that Nemanja Matic has arguably been the most important summer recruit for the Red Devils so far.
Matic joined United from Chelsea in a shock £40million deal and the arrival of the midfielder has given the Premier League giants the solidity at the middle of the park from which the likes of Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba among others, have managed to profit.
Matic has understandably impressed many with his performances for United so far this season and now former Chelsea star Andy Townsend has hailed the Serbian international by stating that he is the ‘most incredible’ signing of the window so far.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ the Debate, Townsend said, “Nemanja Matic is just the most incredible signing of the window so far. I think Jose will be happy with what he’s got. It’s great business for them.”
