Juan Mata agrees new one-year contract with Man Utd

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has agreed a new one-year contract to stay at Old Trafford until next summer after his existing deal with the club expired at the end of June.

The new contract will take Mata into a ninth season as a United player, having joined from Chelsea in January 2014 for what was then a club record £37.1m transfer fee.

Mata has played 273 times for United but his role last season was significantly reduced as a result of the 2020 arrival of Bruno Fernandes and the continued rise of Mason Greenwood, although personal circumstance also played a role in limiting him to fewer than 20 total appearances.
