Juan Mata’s contract at Manchester United expires at the end of the season.
The former Chelsea star has so far not signed a new deal with the 20-time English champions to extend his stay beyond this campaign.
Earlier this month, several reports in the British press indicated there would be a summer clear out at Old Trafford and the 30-year-old’s name has been mentioned across various reports.
If the above reports are true and if the Red Devils don’t hand Mata a new deal, then he’ll leave the English side as a free agent.
However, that is not supposed to be the case, according to his father Juan Manuel Mata, who revealed his son has been offered a new deal by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side during an interview with Cadena Ser.
“Manchester [United] have offered to renew [Juan’s contract]. We are very happy, but there are proposals from Champions League clubs, maybe from Spain. But today is not the day to talk, it is not yet decided,” Mata Sr was quoted as saying by AS.
Should the Spaniard leave Manchester United, there are two clubs he will not join in the summer.
Mata’s father said: “At City? It would not be the ideal option. There are two clubs he would not go: Liverpool and City. We have to respect the Manchester fans, he is very liked here.”
