The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been somewhat appalled by their team’s form on the pitch this season, and talk has turned between the United faithful as to what changes might be made in the summer.
One United fan is sat with his mate enjoying a pint of the landlord’s best real ale and spots an article in Fichajes via The Express, that says Juan Mata could be on his way back to Spain in the summer.
Atletico Madrid have expressed an interest in the little magician and with his playing time at United restricted so far this season, a move might be on the cards.
Spanish outlet Fichajes suggests that Atletico are preparing talks with the former Chelsea attacking midfielder about a potential move, and our resident United fans say they would be gutted to see Mata depart!
United paid £37 million for Mata back in January 2014, and it is expected that they would sell him for much less than what they originally paid.
Our landlord here in the Tavern finds it absurd that United would cash in on such a player, and thinks Mata should be playing much more regularly than he is at the moment.
United fans… Would you sell Mata or keep him? How important is he? Let us know below!
