Matic, out of contract this summer, had been in talks with the club but it looked as if he would leave.
But United boss Solskjaer confirmed Matic will remain at United saying: “He will stay here. Yeah, 100 per cent. We have agreed with him so he will stay."
But in the two months McTominay was out injured, Matic proved his value to help United over a difficult period and convince Soslkjaer he was worth a new contract.
