Man United players don’t want Jose Mourinho to sell this star – report

Manchester United's players want Jose Mourinho to keep hold of Juan Mata this summer, say reports

Manchester United’s players do not want Jose Mourinho to sell Juan Mata in the summer transfer window, according to reports.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the decision would prove to be very unpopular with much of the United squad should Mourinho opt to offload the Spanish playmaker this summer.

The same report claims that Mata himself does not see any issues with Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager.

Mata’s future at United beyond the summer has been a source of speculation in recent weeks following Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager.

The main reason why the Spaniard’s situation has become a source of uncertainty is because it was Mourinho who opted to sell Mata to United from Chelsea back in January 2014.

Mata quickly fell out of favour under Mourinho at Chelsea and was shipped off to United just months after the Portuguese coach’s arrival for his second spell at the club.

However, it remains to be seen whether the playmaker has a future at United under Mourinho.
