The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping their favourite Spaniard can extend his contract before the season is out.
With United exercising the additional one year option in Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera contracts, our regular are hoping that they do similar with Juan Mata’s. However, many reports are breaking that the Spaniard could leave on a free this summer as from 1st January he’s available to speak to other clubs.
Having had a recent run in the first team lately, the midfield maestro is a firm fan favourite. Although many of the local Mancs thought the writing was on the wall when his former boss Mourinho came to United 18 months ago, having sold him at Chelsea to United, he’s been hugely popular.
If Mata does leave, our regulars have been talking about a few names that Ed Woodward needs to bring in to replace the midfielder.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at a couple of superstars that should be making their way to Old Trafford…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
