Man United transfers: ‘Juan Mata has no intention of leaving Red Devils’
Guillem Balague says Juan Mata is happy at Old Trafford
Juan Mata has no intention of leaving Manchester United in the January transfer window, according to Guillem Balague.
The Spain international has been linked with a move away from the Red Devils amid increased competition for a starting place.
Mata has started seven of United’s 11 Premier League games this season, scoring three goals and one assist.
Atletico Madrid have linked with a £20m swoop for the World Cup winner, who swapped Chelsea for Old Trafford in January.
However, Sky Sports’s Spanish football expert Balague says United manager Louis van Gaal is happy with Mata, adding that the midfielder wants to stay.
Abt Mata: he has no intention to leave @ManUtd. Has been in the line-up in 7/9 games this season. 3rd in shirt sells. He’s happy. So is LvG
