Nemanja Matic has admitted he is ‘living my dream’ at Old Trafford after his surprise summer switch from Chelsea.
The Serbian midfielder has made a big impact at United, who currently trail Premier League leaders Manchester City by eight points after the opening 13 games of the season.
Matic has given United a solid base to work from in midfield and admits that he is determined to win them a first Premier League title since 2012-13.
He told Scandinavian supporters’ magazine United-Supporteren: “If we were to win the league it would be a very big deal, not only for me but for the club and the fans as well.
“I’m going to do everything I can to make that happen. The fans can at least expect that I will give absolutely everything in every game. I will always give 100 per cent.
“Let’s see what we can achieve together, however, I think we can go far.
“It’s difficult to make promises in football. I can’t promise that we’ll win the league. However, I can promise that I will give 100 per cent and we’ll see how far it takes us.”
Matic linked up with Jose Mourinho again when he made the switch to Old Trafford and also admitted that he always held a desire to one day play for Manchester United.
“I’m living my dream now, and of course I have a dream about winning the league with United,” Matic added.
“I still remember I watched the Champions League final in 1999 on the television. I know everything, or at least almost everything, about Manchester United.
“United was a big team back then. They had many fantastic players, but for me, Ryan Giggs was the greatest. When Nemanja Vidic came to United, I also admired him.”
