Chelsea last night welcomed home Nemanja Matic from Benfica following a three-year-exodus from the Stamford Bridge club.
Composed, comfortable in possession and with a good range of passing, Matic will add guile and skill to the Chelsea midfield, with Blues owner Roman Abramovich having forked out a transfer fee of around £21million to re-sign the Serbian star.
