Former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has revealed the reason why he left Chelsea for Manchester United in 2017.

United have signed Matic from Chelsea for £40m on a three-year deal but the Serbian believes it was time to make the move due to undisclosed issues behind the scene.

“I was very happy at Chelsea, but I thought it was the right moment to change club,” Matic told Football Beyond Borders, as quoted by Mirror.

“There were reasons which are hard for me to say now. I will never forget my time there, but I'm a Manchester United player now.”

Upon signing for Manchester United, Matic said the chance to play for his former manager at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho was too good to turn down.

“To work with Jose Mourinho once again was an opportunity I couldn't turn down,” he added.

“I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training with them.”

Matic was a key component of Chelsea’s title-winning team in 2014-15 after Mourinho brought him back to the club from Benfica for £20.75m.
