Solskjaer admits Juan Mata could quit Man Utd with contract expiring NEXT MONTH but reveals talks will be held next week

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has admitted Juan Mata could quit the club next month.

The 33-year-old Spaniard arrived at Old Trafford from Chelsea in a £37.1million deal back in January 2014.

The World Cup and European Championship winner’s contract comes to an end next month.

Talks have already taken place between Mata and Solskjaer over his future and a potential extension.

However, a lack of regular football this term may have persuaded the ex-Valencia playmaker to walk away and find a new challenge, with his old club one of those keen to sign him.

When asked for an update on the situation earlier, Solskjaer said: “I’ve kept the dialogue with Juan and we’re due to speak again very soon.

“Of course he’s not played as much as he would like and that’s a decision we will make with him.

“He’s in charge of his own future, he’s been such a good servant for the club.

“But it’s hard to leave good players and good people out of the team, and it’s about what does he want as his next step in his career.

“Is it to play his career out here or is it to go somewhere else? We haven’t made the final decision yet.”


Mata has only made seven appearances for United this year.

He was given compassionate leave in March as his mother passed away.

Now he will be focusing on helping the Red Devils claim Europa League glory later this month when they take on Villarreal in the final on Wednesday 26 May.
