With The Special One in charge of Manchester United, most United fans are already praying so that he does not sell their “Special Juan” Juan Mata for the second time after Jose Mourinho was the one that had initially sold Mata to The Red Devils in the first place. Mourinho sold the Spaniard to David Moyes’s Manchester United for £37.1m. However according to Sky Sports, the former Chelsea player of the year is likely to remain at Old Trafford for this season.
There was more outrage from the fans after the Spaniard was brought in as a substitute and was later substituted just after 27 minutes during Sunday’s Community Shield win over Leicester City casting more doubt over his future at Old Trafford.
Yes, although The Portuguese has confirmed that Mata was taken off because he was the shortest player on the pitch and not because he is not a part of his United plans, the 28 year old is still being linked with multiple clubs.
Speaking of departures, it has been reported that Donald Love and Paddy McNair will be the first pair to depart after completing their medicals at Sunderland and it is also being reported that Adnan Januzaj will also follow the defenders to former United boss, David Moyes at Sunderland.
Unlike Bastian Schweinsteiger, who happened to be banished from the first team and told to train with the reserves as the German looks set to leave Old Trafford, The Spaniard has been given a chance to impress The Special One at Man United and will not be leaving along with Schweinsteiger.
From Mata’s perspective, he’ll definitely be hoping to hit the ground running hard under his former Chelsea boss if he looks for a future with the 20 times English Champions. Mata had featured in every single Premier League game for Luis van Gaal last season and he would look forward to do the same this season with a similar or better impact.
