Guillem Balague delivers latest update on Juan Mata’s Man United future
Guillem Balague takes to social media to give an update about Juan Mata's future at Manchester United
Guillem Balague has taken to social media to deliver the latest news he has on Juan Mata’s future at Manchester United beyond the summer.
The Spanish playmaker’s future at Old Trafford has been a source of some speculation in recent weeks following Jose Mourinho’s arrival as the club’s new manager.
The uncertainty surrounding Mata’s situation has stemmed from the fact that Mourinho was the man who deemed Mata to be surplus to requirements at Chelsea and sold the playmaker to United back in January 2014.
Now, Spanish football writer Balague has revealed that Mata is due to report back to Carrington for pre-season training with United on Wednesday, and will hold talks with Mourinho about his future in the coming days.
Balague responded to the following question on Twitter:
@GuillemBalague what do you make of Juan Mata to Everton?

AT THIS MOMENT, nothing on that. Mata is on holidays. Back on Wednesday. Then he (and Mou) will decide what next https://t.co/hLbDyNJazK

Mata helped United win the FA Cup last season under Louis van Gaal.
