According to the Daily Express, Chelsea are set to reward Nemanja Matic for his performances over the past year by handing him a huge new deal thought to be in the region of £93,000 a week.
Matic has been brilliant since rejoining Chelsea last January from Benfica. He leads the Premier League in tackles this season, while his 41 completed take-ons speaks to his all around ability.
According to the newspaper, Matic is set to extend his deal at Stamford Bridge by one more year, taking it to 2020, with his weekly wage set to take a huge boost by around £30,000, says the Express.
Chelsea have been searching for a world class defensive midfielder since Claude Makelele left the Blues in 2008. They are searching no longer as Matic has quickly become the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League.
