Nemanja Matic closes new deal to stay in Manchester United after Serbia's remarkable turnaround in shape under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
- Nemanja Matic has signed a contract extension with Manchester United
- The Serbian has been impressive since he took his place back on the team
- The 31-year-old seemed to be sure that he Old Trafford would leave earlier this season
- Matic's contract expired in the summer, but the talks were successful
Manchester United & # 39; s Nemanja Matic has achieved a remarkable turnaround in fortunes by concluding a new deal to stay in Old Trafford.
Matic, 31, was certainly looking forward to leaving the club earlier this season when he struggled for shape and fitness and was regarded by fans as a symbol of the previous unpopular Jose Mourinho regime.
However, the reintroduction of the Serbian midfielder to the first XI in December coincided with improved results on the part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and talks have taken place successfully about renewing a contract that ends in the summer.
We have agreed with him that he will stay. 100 percent, & # 39; confirmed Solskjaer, whose party is on an undefeated nine-man race en route to Sunday's Manchester derby at Old Trafford.
The news will lift United as they attempt to complete a first Premier League double over their noisy neighbors since the time of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2010, when Paul Scholes scored an injury time winner at The Etihad.
Since then, City has dominated the Manchester landscape by winning four Premier League titles and a unique domestic Treble. Solskjaer acknowledges that 10 years is too long to wait to beat City at home and on the road.
"That stat is not nice to hear. It is one of our challenges to close this gap, & he thought.
"Every game against City is competitive. We have shown that we can compete with them one day and we are building the team to get the consistency that we need.
& # 39; I have seen improvement throughout the season, but it is easier for me to say that when you are nine unbeaten matches. I know that we sometimes disappoint ourselves early in the season, but some versions have not delivered the deserved results.
& # 39; The new signings we've made have given us that little advantage. We are getting better, but don't let ourselves be dragged fifth in the table or undefeated in nine. That was the norm and going through good patches should be the norm for this club.
"I think we are becoming more consistent, taking up challenges for trophies and also closing the gap in the competition. Start by winning our individual fights and we will win more and more games against City. & # 39;
United this season defeated Pep Guardiola's team twice in the Etihad, in the Premier League and the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, when Matic scored the only goal but later became turned off.
However, they have a bleak home record against City and lose seven of the last 10. Guardiola has won all three of his Premier League matches at Old Trafford and the 3-1 victory in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg proved decisive to take him back to Wembley.
That defeat was a special eye-opener for Solskjaer with City racing in a 3-0 led by rest. The United manager is sure that his players are no longer rabbits stuck in the headlights.
"The city played us out and our heads were gone," he admitted. "We had no control over our emotions and when it settled we resolved it.
" From that moment on we won 2-0 against them in the next three 45 minutes, but the first half cost us clear in the final. & # 39;
This will be Bruno Fernandes' first Manchester derby and the Portuguese star has already taken on the mantle of attacking talisman in the absence of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba. Pogba is approaching a return of an ankle injury that kept him out of Boxing Day.
Solskjaer is happy that Fernandes can accompany younger players around him, such as 22-year-old Scott McTominay.
& # 39; I expect that my more experienced players will get hold of the game & # 39 ;, he said. "Bruno is a leader, just like others like Harry (Maguire), and you saw Victor (Lindelof) at Derby in the FA Cup.
"Bruno can help Scotty. I wouldn't call Scotty a kid, but he still learns the game. But Bruno knows, he has been there, traveled, had his ups and downs. He has been to Italy and Portugal and has learned to deal with setbacks.
"Scotty has been important to us, but he also needs games to return to the level he was before he was injured. It takes time when you are two months away. We are happy to have him back so soon. & # 39;
Maguire, Anthony Martial, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Matic should all return after being left in Pride Park on Thursday, although Odion is also pushing Ighalo to keep his place after having twice scored.
Solskjaer also has the option to deploy young left back Brandon Williams to form a five-man defense with Shaw shifting to the center.

The side of Solskjaer has finally taken shape and has won five games in the middle of an undefeated series of seven games leaving them to leak only one goal.
The Norwegian has relieved some of the intense pressure he previously felt this season, and Matic insists that the rapid development of Solskjaer as a manager is the remedy.
& # 39; Every day he improves, gets more experience & # 39 ;, Matic told Sky Sports . "Certainly he will get better and better.
" Like every manager, even Carlo Ancelotti, now and 20 years ago he is not the same.
& He knows more, hi j will get more experience, so it will be the same with Ole. In my opinion he is a much better manager than a year ago.
& # 39; Now he knows all the players, he knows exactly what to do before the game, after the game. The experience is very important for his work. & # 39;
The 31-year-old is linked to a move to the Serie A, with his contract that expires in June of this year.
Although Matic has managed 107 appearances for the Red Devils since his arrival in West London in 2017, his performances and consistency have not equaled the form that Chelsea fans have seen title-winning seasons in their 2015 and 2017.
AC Milan is a possible destination for Matic, whose playing style probably fits the Italian competition.

- His agents have offered him various reports according to various reports
- AC Milan rejected him, but Juventus and Inter Milan are in the mix for him

But Calcio Mercato reports that he still expects to leave at the end of the season with his contract to expire.
The Serbian has been offered to three parties in Italy while they are looking for a future for the 31-year-old.
AC Milan has already rejected the possibility to bring him in because they are deterred by his salary of € 10 million per year (£ 8.3 million).
Juventus is also in the mix, although they have postponed negotiations while coming up with their plans for the summer.
Inter Milan is also thought to be interested, despite the fact that Christian Eriksen was brought in during the January window, although it is unlikely that they will make a move.

Who would have thought Jose Mourinho would have left a legacy in Old Trafford?
If Manchester United doesn't surprise them with exciting football in the Theater of Dreams, there are baby steps for improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with one goal awarded in four games for the Premier League Sunday ] collision against Watford .
Solskjaer will point out the summer buys Harry Maguire and Aaron wan-Bissaka as factors but equally important is the protective role played by Mourinho signings Nemanja Matic and Fred in front of them.
Matic, 31, is an integral part of United's improvement, although he now faces added petition from fit-again Scott McTominay.
The towering midfielder is a rare Premier League title winner in the calm team of Solskjaer, but was scapegoat for United & # 39; s poor early season form and then was wounded for two months.
Since his return in December, United has kept eight clean sheets in the 14 games the Serbian has played. He started with eight of the last nine and misses the other due to suspension. In the last year of his contract, he does everything he can to offer United another.
"That is football," Matic reflects on his difficult campaign. & # 39; I knew things could change in football and now I am fit, happy, playing. It's the same for players of every age, believe you get a chance and when it comes, take it.
& # 39; It is much easier if you always play. You get more confidence. Playing once a month is hard.
"We are all part of clean sheets, but especially those at the back, me as a defensive midfielder. We have made progress and I am proud of that. We talk to each other. We communicate. Everyone is trying to be involved.
"I am happy that Scott is back. There is always room in the team for good players. I do not worry. He is the kind of player that I like to train with them. As a person he is very good. "
It is ironic that Solskjaer arrived in Old Trafford with a mission to restore United & # 39; s attacking football with young players. But it is more traditional qualities that have caused the recent momentum of United, symbolized by a devotee from Mourinho such as Matic.
Monday's victory over Chelsea renewed hope for a finish in the top four. Thursday's draw in Bruges puts them in a strong position to get ahead in the Europa League.
Solskjaer has embraced the importance of leadership. Maguire has responded well as captain. The signing of Bruno Fernandes in January is just as impressed by his vocal skills as by his technical
These are themes that Mourinho also emphasized, but in a surly manner. Solskjaer says similar things, but with a smile.
& # 39; I didn't expect Harry to be captain so soon, but he has everything a leader should have. It was normal for him to take on the role, "United's manager explained.
" We have had Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs as United's captains. Harry is his own United is, if not the largest, one of the two or three largest clubs in the world and he is the front man.
"You must have thick skin. You must not sulk or feel sorry for yourself. We have a couple of men and a few guys in our team, he sets an example for everyone, turn off games, play time and time again. & # 39;
& # 39; He organizes paintball, he organizes a & # 39;
In midfield, the expressive Fernandes were both drawn for his creativity and personality.
& # 39; Another conductor & # 39 ;, is how Solskjaer describes him. & # 39; He reminds me of Scholesy (Paul Scholes) as a player, but is another type of person outside the field. He walked around on the bank in Bruges, talked to the starters, helped them, gave them instructions.
& # 39; I was very impressed and the 10 minutes he played at the end, you could see that there was a difference in our team. & # 39;
Watford are ideal opponents this afternoon to measure United's progress. Two months ago they capitulated 2-0 on Vicarage Road where goalkeeper David de Gea made a wrong mistake.
The next away match, at Burnley, Matic was selected for his first Premier League match for three months and so tightened up because, despite United missing their two biggest names, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.
