Juan Mata took to social media to show off his latest pair of boots as the Spanish midfielder reported for duty ahead of Manchester United’s pre-season training regime.

The Spaniard has been enjoying some time off in Mexico in recent weeks as he made the most of his summer holidays.

However, with much of Louis van Gaal’s side now back at Carrington to prepare for the new campaign, Mata looked to be in good spirits as he looks forward to the 2015-16 season.

Mata posted the picture above on his Instagram account on Monday morning and wrote: “Make the difference or make way. X15 is here from @adidasUK.”

Mata enjoyed a relatively successful first campaign under Van Gaal last season. The Spanish playmaker scored nine goals and made four assists for the Red Devils as they ended up fourth in the table.
