NEMANJA MATIC has landed in Italy ahead of his free transfer move from Manchester United to Roma.
The Serbian midfielder, 33, is leaving the Red Devils this month when his contract expires.
Now he is due to reunite with former Chelsea and United manager Jose Mourinho in the capital city for a third time.
Matic was pictured arriving at Ciampino's airport in Rome earlier today, where he was only too happy to wave for the camera.
And he also signed autographs for fans waiting for his arrival ahead of putting pen-to-paper on his Roma contract.
The veteran is now due to undergo the formalities of a medical before officially joining last season’s Europa Conference League winners.

Matic is believed to have agreed a 12-month deal at Roma with the option to extend it for another campaign.
The package is believed to be worth around £3million – which equates to roughly £58,000-a-week.
The star left Chelsea for Benfica back in 2011 but Mourinho convinced the Blues to fork out to bring him back to Stamford Bridge in 2014.
The pair both enjoyed Premier League and League Cup success in West London before Mourinho’s departure in December 2015.

However, the Special One was named United manager in 2016 and swooped to bring in Matic the very next year.
But after losing the FA Cup Final to Chelsea that term, things continued to turn sour with the Portuguese coach and he was eventually sacked after starting the 2018/19 season with just seven wins in the first 17 Premier League games.
However, following his recent success in Europe, he will now be hoping that Matic can help him battle it out with champions AC Milan and rivals Inter Milan for the Serie A crown next season.
