Serbia international midfielder Nemanja Matic has signed a new contract with Manchester United which will keep him at the club until June 2023.

The 31-year-old joined United from Chelsea in 2017 and has made 114 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.

"I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Manchester United will be a huge honour," Matic said on the club's official website.

"This is a really exciting team to be part of. We have a good balance of youth and experience within the squad and there is great camaraderie amongst the group."

Matic, who has played 48 times for Serbia and won two English Premier League titles with Chelsea, has started each of United's last three Premier League games and made 16 league appearances so far this season.

"I am delighted that Nemanja has signed a new contract ... his experience, professionalism and leadership will be invaluable to this young talented group," United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
