Speaking on his official YouTube podcast, Rio Ferdinand said: “Nemanja Matic is a very good footballer in that midfield position.
“Very simple, understands the role very well, covers spaces, he’s physical enough, big enough to handle the physical demands.
“I really like him, I respect him as a player, but he’s at the wrong end in terms of age and that profile of player. I think he’s got till the end of this season.
“I’d be surprised if he’s still in the squad next season. Just based on the age of what he is and where he is in his career. But he’s a great servant to football.”
Matic is contracted to Manchester United until June 2023 and there have been no rumors linking the Serb with an Old Trafford exit this summer.
The Red Devils are highly likely to keep the 33-year-old at the club in case Paul Pogba decides to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
