Manchester United transfer news
The Spanish international has been in fine form this season after something of a slow start at Old Trafford, and has been linked with an exit on a number of occasions this season.
The likes of Atletico Madrid and AS Roma have also shown an interest in Mata, but his recent improvement for United now seems to have sealed his place in Louis van Gaal’s plans.
Despite an offer from Juventus, it does not look like the Red Devils are planning to let the former Chelsea midfielder leave anytime soon.
