Though Jose Mourinho is seemingly hell-bent on treating World Cup winners at Manchester United badly, the Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern refuse to lament their new boss.
Having brought in both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ can currently do no wrong at Old Trafford.
Despite Bastian Schweinsteiger’s almighty fall from grace at the Theatre of Dreams, Juan Mata could now sensationally bet set to STAY.
Both he and his new boss barely share the most loving relationships, with Mourinho having sold him at Chelsea and recently subbing him off just thirty minutes after his introduction in the Community Shield.
However, according to Sky Sports, the 27-year old is unlikely to leave the club he joined in 2014 for £37.1m during this transfer window and could yet have a role to play.
The news is likely to come as a blow to Everton, who have been linked with a move for the former Valencia playmaker.
Could Mata end up flourishing under Mourinho? Perhaps he could replace Rooney, should he continue to struggle?
