Nemanja Matic, the former Chelsea player who recently switched loyalty to Manchester United in a £40m deal, has gracefully added another year to his age. He celebrated his 29th birthday with wife and little boy on 1 August.
The Serbian midfielder was seen with his happy family on the streets of Cheshire yesterday, according to a report from Mail Online.

For the first time since confirming his transfer to Old Trafford, Matic joined his United teammates at training on the morning of his birthday, ahead of the club’s last preseason friendly.
He later hooked up with his pretty wife Aleksandra and son who looked happy in his father’s new team colors.

The birthday boy is currently searching for a new apartment and is expected to settle down soon. He reportedly visited some estate agents in an apparent move to relocate his family from London to Manchester.
In the meantime, he’s getting used to his new environment and friends.
Matic is Jose Mourinho’s trusted ally, and is believed to be the missing piece in Paul Pogba’s unimpressive one-year run at Old Trafford.
With Matic and Romelu Lukaku’s arrival, Timothy Fosu-Mensah told ESPN in an interview that United is now in a position to win titles this season.
‘Welcome to the Manchester United family and happy b’day Nemanja Matic!’ David de Gea, Manchester United goalkeeper wrote on a Twitter post yesterday.

Matic will likely feature among United’s squad in their upcoming Wednesday match against Italian club side Sampdoria in Dublin despite his low match fitness level.
United will also play their UEFA Super Cup game against Real Madrid next Tuesday.
The Serbia international footballer signed a three-year contract with an option for another year extension.
