Man United to offer 30-year-old a three-year contract – report
Man United are planning to offer Juan Mata a new three-year deal to keep him at Old Trafford, say reports
Manchester United are planning to offer Juan Mata a new three-year contract to keep him at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.
Metro is reporting that the Red Devils want to keep the Spanish playmaker at Old Trafford as he enters into the final year of his contract at the club.
The Red Devils triggered a one-year extension to Mata’s contract in January to avoid losing him on a free transfer in the summer.
According to the same story, Manchester United were open to selling Mata this summer, but the lack of interest in his services has prompted the Red Devils to prepare to offer him a new deal.
The article says that Manchester United are ready to offer him a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2021.
It is claimed that Mata earns around £150,000 a week at Old Trafford and the playmaker can expect a slight increase in salary should he pen a new contract.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will be aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season after the Red Devils finished in second place and without a trophy last term.
Manchester United have not won the Premier League since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
