Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has admitted that he doesn’t know what his future with the club holds.
Mata has been reduced to a team player at United with reports rife that he might be returning back to Spain to join his family after the passing of his mother earlier in the year.
Mata was handed a rare start in United’s final game of the season against Wolves and bagged the winner from the penalty spot and asked afterward about his future, the former Chelsea man admitted that he didn’t know what the club had in store for him.
“I don’t know. We have a very important game in three days which is where my mind is at the moment, but I still feel I can play good football and give a lot to the team and for many years enjoy playing football like today,” Mata said.
On his part, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that they were sitting the player down to discuss his future but intimated that they might allow him to leave since he wasn’t being given enough games.
“We are talking to Juan [Mata]. We’ll sit down and of course, it’s a bit what he wants as well. I don’t give him enough game time. But he’s such a top professional,” Solskjaer said.
There’s an argument to be made that Mata doesn’t suit Solskjaer’s pacy, direct attacking style with the player having been linked with a return to Valencia.
