Hello ED002, Thanks for making lockdown a bit more exciting with the transfer gossip. Are there any updates on potential outgoings? (Lingard, Mata, Matic etc. ) Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - No major changes as far as I know - but Matic has signed a new deal.}

Are there any teams still interested in Matic and are the club willing to sell?

{Ed002's Note - He has signed a new deal so no.}

Do you want Matic to leave Slunky?

Matic has been quality since his return and the reduced number of goals we've conceded is evident.

Far better defensively when Matic plays over Mctominay. Fact.

I'd argue he's been our best CDM since his return to the team, sure he took a few games to get fit and didn't really get played for the first half of the year. I was just wondering if he is going to be here next season and how our Midfield could end up looking, especially given that Juventus have a load of CM's on the table. I'm just wondering how frequently he's going to be playing considering our other options in midfield.

When fit and on form Matic is our best DM. The problem is that he can't stay fit for a whole season. This year he was out injured until Christmas, so we got his early season form in January and February. Maybe if he only plays one game a week, or every other week then his legs might not be gone by December.

Either way he is a talented and experienced player to have as part of the squad.

He will be useful next season.

Matic when not match fit or over used as per his age, he is a liability. Good 9n ball and defensive rock but its pain to see him jogging around without urgency in matches; mostly down to burn out. since his return from injury, he got enough rest to recover. I believe, if used correctly, he can still deliver for 1 more season. Needs frequent sub offs or Game once a week only.
