Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: ‘No decision made on Juan Mata’s future’


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that no ultimate resolution has been taken over Juan Mata‘s future at Manchester United.

The Spaniard, now in his eighth season at Outdated Trafford, has solely made eight Premier League appearances all season – and simply seven in all competitions because the flip of the yr.

Now 33, Mata’s present contract at Man United expires on the finish of this month, that means that he may go away without cost this summer time.

Talking earlier this week, Solskjaer famous that he would have additional talks with the midfielder to find out what his subsequent transfer can be.

“I’ve stored the dialogue with Juan and we’re attributable to converse once more very quickly,” he stated.

“After all he’s not performed as a lot as he would love and that’s a choice we’ll make with him.

“He’s in command of his personal future, he’s been such an excellent servant for the membership. But it surely’s arduous to go away good gamers and good folks out of the workforce, and it’s about what does he need as his subsequent step in his profession.

“Is it to play his profession out right here or is it to go elsewhere? We haven’t made the ultimate resolution but.”

We solely see Mata seem in flashes as of late – that dainty, mellifluous presence not an everyday present, floating throughout our screens solely each every so often, a participant whose core qualities are nonetheless pure and delectable as ever but in addition – crucially – primarily the identical as that of Bruno Fernandes, solely with out the Portugal worldwide’s essential vicious edge.

Can Mata press like his demonically motivated Iberian counterpart? Can these legs – after now a decade in England – match up with the uncooked aggression of a workforce whose major technique is breaking quick up the pitch and bursting by way of the traces? Can he dominate Manchester Metropolis on the Etihad? It wouldn’t appear so.

Then once more, no person thought Edinson Cavani would discover the violence that’s so wanted to achieve this league, and he’s 34. Maybe Mata – presumably the nicest man to ever exist – nonetheless has time to seek out that additional chunk. In any other case, it appears as if a transfer again to Spain could be on the playing cards.
