AS Roma have announced the signing of Nemanja Matic after the midfielder’s contract expired at Manchester United.
The 33-year-old revealed in April that he would be leaving Old Trafford at the end of the season and it has now been announced that he has been signed by Jose Mourinho for a third time.
Mourinho has never signed a player three times before – but he clearly rates Matic enough to bring him to clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and AS Roma.

Roma said in a statement on their official website: “The club is delighted to confirm the signing of Nemanja Matic.
“Matic, 33, has put pen-to-paper on a one-year contract with the Giallorossi that runs until 30 June 2023.”
Matic added: “I am pleased and honorued to be joining this club and I cannot wait to start the new season with my team-mates.
“Roma is a big club, with amazing fans and a coach, Jose Mourinho, who is well known to everyone — making the decision to come here very straightforward.”
We would like to wish Matic all the best during his time in Italy, unless we happen to stumble across Roma in Europe.
