The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to their next Premier League game, which takes place this evening. Amidst all the drama and excitement of deadline day, the Red Devils have the small task of a crucial Premier League game to focus on – and it’s fair to say that the excitement is already building in the pub.
It’s a game that could have huge repercussions, with their opponents Tottenham likely to give Mourinho’s men a real test as each side looks to pick up a win.
Ahead of the game, though, the attention of our resident Red Devils is firmly behind placed on one player and the news that they have signed a new deal with the Red Devils.
As confirmed by Man Utd both on Twitter and on their official website, midfielder Juan Mata has agreed a one-year extension to his current deal at Old Trafford, with the Spaniard now set to stay beyond the summer.

It’s no less than he deserves, of course, having enjoyed quite the run of form at Old Trafford over the last few years. Technical, tricky and exciting, the Spaniard is crucial to Jose Mourinho’s team.
He’s a very popular man amongst Man Utd circles, and that has been exemplified by the way that fans have reacted to this news. Describing the decision to tie him down as a ‘fantastic move’, Man Utd fans are clearly delighted.

Fantastic move from #MUFC Juan Mata is a very important player and has been terrific since he arrived. A player with his football brain is a must have in this Man Utd team.
