"United were crying out for a central midfielder with the qualities of Nemanja Matic".

"There's pressure, but coming for £40 million from Monaco after a great season, the pressure was going to be there regardless", Lampard added. They have weakened their own team and strengthened Manchester United, who now have a better chance of winning the Premier League than Chelsea.

Chelsea have made four signings - Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Willy Caballero - this summer, while allowing Matic, Nathan Ake, Asmir Begovic, Nathaniel Chalobah, John Terry, Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave either permanently or on loan. He needs this year to kick on and Matic arriving at the club has to help him.

"Being the main striker for a club like Chelsea, like Manchester United, like Real Madrid, like Barcelona, brings a lot to it", Lampard said. 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.

"I will say this too, I will play up north". I have been away for over 10 years now and I don't get to see my mum that often.

"I was surprised to see him move to United and maybe there is more to this deal that we realise", stated the former England midfielder, who is moving into television punditry with BT Sport this season.

Asked if he would start against Burnley on Saturday, Conte said: "He's working very well and starting to understand our idea of football".

"I think they're in a real good position, the squad looks strong and I think how Rashford, Martial and Lukaku play will determine what happens", said former United defender Gary Neville. "I think I had the benefit of realising how good he is when he's playing just in front of you - on and off the ball".

"For the record I don't think Danny will go his a sensational player but not great to do what has done with this interview as been told to!"

"He brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they've been lacking". "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. Mourinho knows him and he's won two titles, but can he get back to being the player I saw in 2014 and 2015?" You have to have faith in the manager.
