Nemanja Matic, dubbed "Serbian Vieira" claims that he accepted a 4 year contract with Chelsea, as reported by SKY.
Left footed 6.4ft central midfielder is only 20 years old and if this is true he will be yet another youngster joining Blues. Deal is not complete yet, as talks are ongoing about his transfer fee.
He has played twice for the full Serbian national team, the full 90 minutes against Poland last December and then 27 minutes of a friendly with Cyprus in February. A number of other clubs were interested in Matic including CSKA Moskow, Tottenham and Genoa but Chelsea seems to have won the race to sign him.
Matic's signing would indicate that Chelsea is in next stage of evolution. Veteran core squad would help nurture future stars.
Guess Fergie will not be able to claim that Chelsea is old, but surely he will find something else to moan about, just like the other day when he claimed "transfer market madness". Madness which he helped to create by buying Berbatov for 60 Million dollars and selling Ronaldo for 160 Million.
