Chelsea signing Matic: I am ready for Man Utd

New Chelsea signing Nemanja Matic says he's ready to make his debut on Sunday against Manchester United.

Matic completed a £21million transfer back to Stamford Bridge from Benfica last night, having left the club three years ago as part of the £25m deal which saw David Luiz come the other way.

He said: "The coach (Jose Mourinho) has to decide but I am ready. I am in training, I played the last game on Sunday against Porto so I don't have any problems."

Matic added: "Chelsea are a very good team and have very good young players. In the next few years Chelsea will show power.

"Of course we need a bit of time because if a player is young he needs time to show all his qualities but I think Chelsea will be one of the best teams in Europe."
