Loads of Man Utd fans have mixed reactions as Juan Mata offered new contract

Manchester United have confirmed they will offer Juan Mata a new contract this summer to keep him at the club, as reported by the BBC.

Mata’s current deal was set to expire at the end of this month, but the Reds have announced a new deal has been offered to keep the Spaniard at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old scored six times for the Reds last year and made two assists in 33 club appearances (whoscored).

Mata has been a good servant at Old Trafford since joining from Chelsea, but question marks remain over whether he is still effective as he once was. The Spaniard has rarely been given the chance to thrive in a number 10 role at United and has been consistently played from the right-wing, under all of United’s managers in the post Sir Alex era.

However, Solskjaer is clearly keen for Mata to stay and will give him another chance in a red shirt next season if he wants to stay at the club. Mata could also provide useful advice for new signing Daniel James. United confirmed on their website today that a deal for James has been agreed ‘in principle’ with an official announcement expected shortly.

Manchester United fans on twitter have reacted to the news of Mata’s contract offer. Many are unimpressed with the new deal and are concerned with what this means for the club’s long-term future.
