Speaking on The Debate, our new nightly show on Sky Sports Premier League, Neville said the addition of Matic "puts United in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea".

With Matic now in a United shirt, it is unlikely Fabinho would be used to screen the defence, but his knowledge at right-back would be welcomed by the self-proclaimed Special One.

"This doesn't seem quite the same, but at the same time we don't know whether Matic wanted to leave".

"When a player leaves a club, you do not normally see a manager speak so glowingly about them", the former England worldwide told Sky Sports.

The move has reunited Matic with former manager Jose Mourinho, who last week described the 29-year-old as a "genius" after he impressed in a friendly win over Sampdoria in Dublin, as well as prompting many to question why Chelsea would willingly strengthen a domestic rival.

"It amazes me, why would you sell Matic to Manchester United?". The Champions League is obviously more hard.

Significant strength was also visible among software stocks, as reflected by the 1.2% gain posted by the Dow Jones Software Index. Investors piled into safe-haven assets such as USA government bonds, gold and the Japanese yen and sold off shares.

The former Red Devils midfielder told Paddy Power: "Some people have said that they can't believe Chelsea let Matic go to United, and that they've handed them the title, but I don't see that".

"He seemed like he wanted to leave a year ago at times, although he was very influential and played very well", he said of Costa.

I know he was at Juventus but I don't think he was ever completely their No. 1 striker, slightly in and out at different times.

"It is hard job to play against a team that dominates the possession - and he tried", Mourinho said of his striker. "I think we just have to accept it and move on".

"Once he gets into that, and comfortable with the surroundings - and the magnitude of what's expected of him - he'll be a good signing". "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much".

"We just develop that and we played in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think the LA Galaxy, because it is something during the season we are maybe going to do".
