Since joining the Red Devils in 2014 he made 285 appearances and scored 51 goals.

But he has hardly featured in the squad this season.

While his next club is currently unknown, The Times have reported that he could be willing to stay in England.

And he is refusing to rule out a potential move to a Premier League rival.

Mata has previously been linked with a move back to Spain, with Barcelona reportedly interested.

However, the cash-strapped Catalan giants may struggle to cover his wages.

Real Sociedad are also said to be interested in the midfielder.

Mata follows Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic who are also leaving the club for free this summer.


New boss Erik ten Hag is looking to completely revamp Man Utd’s current squad following a disasterous season.

Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong is a key transfer target, with Ten Hag eager to reunite with the former Ajax star.

But the club will have to pay around £65million if they want to secure his signature.

Man Utd officials are also lining up a move for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as an alternative option.
