The Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are still getting over yesterday’s frustrating 1-1 draw with AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
Though, our landlord here in the Tavern has alerted the Red Devils fans to some news coming in from the Daily Star – with the outlet claiming that the Manchester club are looking set to secure a new deal for midfielder Juan Mata.
The player who cost Manchester United £37.1 million, has had a mixed time at Old Trafford since arriving from Chelsea – though it seems that the Spaniard has a future at the Premier League giants, with the midfielder having an option to extend his contract by another year.
An array of Red Devils fans by the jukebox here in the Tavern think this is fantastic news, and feel the attacker is a key component in Jose Mourinho’s side – and at 28, undoubtedly has a number of years left in his playing career.
Our landlord feels Mata is incredibly underrated, and admits that he should be the first name on the team-sheet for Mourinho these days.
Mata has amassed 39 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions this season, though has only notched nine goals and provided three assists… But our landlord feels he offers so much more to the team than just that.
Man Utd fans….. What do you make of this news? Let us know below!
