It’s official ! Jose Mourinho and Chelsea have re-signed the Serbian international Nemanja Matic who once again would have an opportunity to play for the London Blues.
Nemanja Matic has signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea, only three years after he left Stamford Bridge for €5m . Chelsea payed much more, and landed the €25m offer which was enough to re-sign Benfica midfielder.
The 26-year-old Nemanja Matic joined Chelsea for just €1.8m in 2009 but two years later he left as part of David Luiz’s deal to west London in January 2011.
“I am very happy for this opportunity to be back at this club,” Matic told the club’s official website. “I feel very good because of that and just want to say I will give my best to help the team and make the Chelsea fans happy.”
Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho added: “I am very pleased that Nemanja is returning to Chelsea. He has grown as a player in Portugal and has become a fantastic all-round midfielder.
“I am sure he will become a very important member of the squad and help us to achieve our ambitions.”
