Michael Carrick also takes his children to the sessions, as did Zlatan Ibrahimovic before he quit last week to head to the MLS.

And now ex-Chelsea ace Matic takes his seven-year-old son Filip to midweek classes at their former Cliff training ground.

An Old Trafford source said: "Nemanja has now signed his son up to play for the club's academy under the watchful eye of the coaches.

"The club run a midweek soccer school at their ex-training ground where Zlatan used to and Carrick still sends his lad.

"It can be difficult for the younger siblings of players when they first arrive at the club, especially when they've come from far away.

"The club offer to bring them to regular training as it's a good opportunity for them to make new friends and assess if they've any talent."

Matic's son is already a United convert after being snapped last month celebrating his birthday with a huge Old Trafford cake.
