Namanja Matic Transfer From Chelsea Signifies Underground Happenings - Mourinho

The Manchester United summer signing has impressed with his in his Premier League debut as a United player helping them start the season with a magnificent 4-0 win over West Ham United.

Manchester United brought the midfielder this summer from Chelsea after he helped the team win to a premier League trophy and an asset in the Chelsea team.

The United Boss also saw it unbelievable for the blues to grant United the midfielder and that it something unusual has taken place behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.

"[It] depends on what was happening behind [closed] doors," he said.

"And we don't know. The only thing we know, of course with Chelsea money, I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities. 

"And since I left I always thought he could be a perfect player for us. But I didn't disturb him. I didn't disturb Chelsea. I never thought it was possible unless something special was happening.

"And it looked like something was happening. Because his agent told me 'you can have him, you just have to pay'.

"So we have him, and we are very happy with that.

"Because he's a player that our team needs and now with these kind of qualities we have Nemanja and Michael Carrick. Michael in spite of his age has a role to play. And I'm happy with these kind of stability players."

The United Boss also pleaded that more time be give to Lindelof to adapt to the English kind of play.

"I think Real Madrid was too early for him," he said.

"He played because [Phil] Jones and [Eric] Bailly were both suspended. I had players coming from different leagues to the Premier League [in the past] and normally it is not easy.

"I brought in 2004 a phenomenal central defender to England, Ricardo Carvalho. He was one of the best central defenders in the last decade in the Premier League but he struggled.
"It was difficult for him to come and adapt in the beginning.

"I think Victor needs a little bit of time. And he's going to have that time. Let's go step by step, because Victor is a fantastic player."
