Benfica midfielder Matic confirms Chelsea return

Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic has confirmed he's moving to Chelsea.

A Bola says Matic, who left Stamford Bridge three years ago, will reportedly cost €26.3million (£21.9m), while Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta will move to Benfica on loan for the rest of the season.

"Yes, the game against FC Porto was my last game for Benfica," said Matic.

"I want to improve, I want to play in a better league and I want to go to Chelsea, a club I also love. I insisted on leaving because I think this is the right moment."
