Gary Neville: Nemanja Matic's Man United arrival from Chelsea 'strange'

Gary Neville: Nemanja Matic's Man United arrival from Chelsea 'strange'

Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said: "I really like the Matic signing".

"There has been the [Diego] Costa distraction, the sale of Matic, not bringing in players - [Romelu] Lukaku was obviously missed out on".

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".

Antonio Conte concedes that the departure of Nemanja Matic was an unexpected blow to his plans at Chelsea this season.

The Serbia global joined former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho at Manchester United for £40 million.

Ant McPartlin admits he could have died following two-year drug battle
And now one half of well-loved TV duo has admitted he was left "screaming in pain" after "an insane drug binge" almost killed him. Following his release from rehab, Ant McPartlin has spoken of the sheer relief of admitting to his problems and getting help.

"He brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they've been lacking". He is probably the best in England alongside N'Golo Kante.

Matic was sold to Manchester United for a £40m fee and the Serb will undoubtedly strengthen the spine of Jose Mourinho's side as they bid to contend for the Premier League title.

"Chelsea have broken up that partnership and strengthened their rivals".

After an impressive pre-season, United will now look to prepare for their Premier League opener against West Ham on Sunday.

"And I think what he has done this summer is flex his muscles a little bit, he is in a strong position, he had a great year last year, he did wonderful things at Chelsea".

Vietnam Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh is among top diplomats from more than 20 countries attending meetings in Manila this week. Wang said the two had an intensive conversation during which China urged North Korea to maintain calm.

Chelsea secured the services of Bakayoko from Monaco and still has Kante on his roster.

The transfer has left many surprised, given Matic's contribution to the Chelsea cause in recent years.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte may have recently agreed an improved two-year contract at Stamford Bridge, however, things are still far from ideal at the club, according to Neville.

The signing of Bakayoko meant that, had Matic stayed, he would have been forced to accept the role of a benchwarmer. He was good in some games, inexperienced in others.

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
