‘I’ll see when we speak’ – Juan Mata hopes to extend Man United contract under new boss

Juan Mata was one of the players expected to leave Manchester United on a free transfer once his agreement lapses toward the finish of the campaign.

However, the Spaniard has now uncovered that he might want to remain on.

In an interview with The Athletic: “I will see when we speak how we feel, what his [Erik ten Hag] ideas are, after that a decision will be made [on my future].”

Mata, 34, then, at that point, opened up on signing a one-year expansion the previous summer. He said: “First because I love the club, second because I hoped I could give much more on the pitch than I ended up doing, and third because last season was horrible for me, for many reasons, especially because of the passing of my mum.

“I am gonna be very honest, when we made the signings we made I genuinely felt, ‘We are gonna really compete to win the Premier League now.’

“That’s why I renewed, I wanted to be part of that. One of the things I always say: winning a massive trophy with Manchester United would be an incredible feeling after being here for so many years, knowing the fans and everyone working in the club like I do.”

Mata has demonstrated to be a strong impact for the more youthful players and, surprisingly, impressed during the couple of chances he got this season.

One might contend that it’s the ideal opportunity for United to continue on from ageing players yet a ultimate choice appears to be in Ten Hag’s hands.
