Juan Mata has taken to social media to deliver his seal of approval after Manchester United unveiled their new Adidas home kit for the 2016-17 season over the weekend.

The Red Devils released their new strip on Saturday to reveal the kit that United will wear during their first season under new manager Jose Mourinho.

Mata is currently in China with the rest of his Manchester United team-mates as they continue their preparations for the new Premier League season.

And the Spanish playmaker seemed to be impressed with the club’s new kit, as he posted the picture above of him wearing it on social media.

Mata shared the photo above on Instagram and wrote: “The new kit is ready! #FirstNeverFollows @adidasfootball 🔴 @manchesterunited”

Mata’s future at United beyond the summer has been a source of speculation following Mourinho’s arrival at the club.

The Spaniard’s situation has been in the headlines because it was Mourinho who opted to sell the playmaker to United from Chelsea back in January 2014.
