Mata likely to leave United

Juan Mata looks increasingly likely that he will leave Manchester United at the end of the season.

He has less than six months left on his current deal and, although United have the option to extend it, as they have with other players in a similar position, they have shown no inclination to do so, in part because his sell-on value is declining because of his age.

The 32-year-old has started just six matches so far this season and has been pushed further and further down the pecking order.

Mata joined United from Chelsea for what was then a club record fee of £37.1 million and he ahs gone on to male 265 appearances from them, scoring 50 times, although his game time has been steadily reducing in recent seasons.

The Spanish international has won the DA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during his time at old Trafford.
