WILL MATA PLAY ANY ROLE AT UNITED NEXT SEASON?
Following the confirmation that Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has recently signed a new contract extension at the club, several questions have been asked, including whether he will be having any role to play at the club next season. United are already said to be a team in dire need of winning trophies and they have continued to prepare to be that team by signing new players. With each player they sign, the existing players continue to fall further down the pecking order under manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær and following the recent signing of Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, Mata has found himself in that bracket.
It came as a surprise to many that United decided to hand him a new one-year contract with a lot of people already expecting him to leave Old Trafford this summer. However, Mata is a calm player and did not utter any word about being displeased about his bit-part role under Solksjær.
He is the type of player that would continue to work hard in training and wait for opportunities to come by so he can grab them and make the most of them as well. Nemanja Matic is yet to sign his contract extension and could be the one who leaves Old Trafford this summer.
