Man United offer new one-year contract to 30-year-old so he doesn’t leave for free

Manchester United still have several key players who are out of contract this coming summer, with the club now getting to the stage where new deals must be signed soon…

One such player is Juan Mata, and it’s clear that United are doing what they can to ensure he doesn’t leave for free. According to the Daily Mirror, the 30-year-old has been offered a new one-year contract to avoid that happening.

Apparently, Mata would net a nice £6.7million if he puts pen to paper on the twelve month deal, although as per usual, United are reluctant to offer anyone over 30 a new longterm contract.

We all love Mata, he’s a brilliant individual to have at the club. He always plays with a smile on his face and never moans off the field. The Spaniard is a great asset as he brings something different to the table, and when we need that creative spark to carve open defences, he’s probably our best player in those situations.

Hopefully, United and the player come to an agreement in the not too distant future – even if it’s just to ensure the club get some sort of transfer fee back for him should they choose to sell him on this summer.
