Mata's future, in the air

In recent seasons, the Asturian has lost prominence in the team and his contract, which ends this summer, has not yet been renewed.

Mata's-future-in-the-air

Seven years after his arrival at Manchester United, Juan Mata is not clear about his future at the club. The Spanish midfielder was, in January 2014, the most expensive signing of the Red Devils (about 40 million euros) from Chelsea. In recent seasons Mata has lost prominence in the team and his contract, which ends this summer, has not yet been renewed. However, the club has a unilateral option to extend it until 2022, as for example happened recently with Pogba to prevent him from leaving for free in the summer.The situation of Mata is similar to that of Cavani, who also has a contract until 2021 and can also see his relationship extended until 2022 if Manchester United so decides. While the Spaniard will turn 33 in April, the Uruguayan will be 34 this Sunday. On the field, on the other hand, life is different: Mata has only started in four games this season and has not entered any of the last four calls while Cavani has already scored seven goals, has removed Martial from the title and it has gained recognition in just a few months since its arrival.

This is how Solskjaer explained the situation of Juan Mata: "You all know the quality he has. If he plays, he scores goals and contributes. But there are other players who also have their role, for example. Greenwood has done well in that position and now he is doing it. Pogba, "explained the Norwegian. Mata has just turned seven in Manchester and was a key player in the triumphs of the FA Cup 2016 and the Carabao Cup and Europa League in 2017.
