Juan Mata is convinced that Manchester United will bring in the right players this summer to help transform the club back into title contenders.

The Red Devils look set to miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League, with David Moyes’ side currently seventh in the Premier League and 10 points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

However, Mata – who joined United from Chelsea in January – believes that the wheels are already in motion to bring in “top players” ahead of next season.

I have the faith they are going to bring top players in

“This will always be a top level club, one of the biggest in the world,” Mata told the Daily Mirror.

“So if you don’t play Champions League one season, you’ll play in it the next year, or you will still win trophies, because it’s what the club is about.

“I have no doubt about it. When I joined, in all my conversations with the board and the manager about next season, they were confident about getting the right players.

“They know, and I know, we’re in a transitional moment, but in the summer they’re going to try to sign a few players and I have the faith they are going to bring top players in.

“I’m sure this club is going to come back and fight for every trophy. Since I was a kid, Manchester United was fighting for everything, and this moment is going to come back for sure.”
