Juan Mata’s future in Manchester is uncertain
Juan Mata faces an uncertain future at Man Utd, with no renewal option in the contract going down to the free agency, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Ole Gunnar had a dialogue with Juan Mata
The current World Cup-winning midfielder, who has been in the books at Old Trafford since January 2014, will be cleared to take on a new challenge at the end of the season. The 33-year-old isn’t as often as he would like this term, taking in just 16 appearances in all competitions, but Ole Gunnar’s plans could remain for him if the Spaniard decides he would like to stay. When asked about Juan’s future ahead of the Premier League meeting with Fulham on Tuesday, Ole Gunnar said that he has kept the dialogue with Mata and they should be performing again very soon. According to Ole, of course, Mata is not playing as much as he would like, and this is the decision they will make with him. Juan is in charge of his future and was such a good servant for the club.
How did Juan fight for Manchester United?
David Moyes ran into Chelsea’s ranks for the Champions League winner as he desperately pushed for a fortune reversal to keep his head from the chopping block in Manchester. David Moyes only lasted a few weeks after Juan’s arrival, but the Spanish International has become one of the longest running Old Trafford players. Played 271 matches for the Red Devils, scoring 50 goals on the way. Juan took to FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League wins with United, with another continental trophy to tackle this season. The benevolent character has been a fan favorite at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge, never giving less than 100 percent to any particular cause, and also making good use of his profile by creating the Common Goal charity movement.
