Meanwhile, Mata recently opened up on his United career – and admitted he still found it hard to believe he plays for the club.
“That feeling of being a Manchester United player is really special and almost unique in football,” the Spaniard said in Amazon Prime’s exclusive docuseries Living Abroad.
“At times it feels surreal that in the morning I put on that shirt to train that I play in the stadium where players like Eric Cantona, George Best, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes have played.
“Players I watched as a kid from far away and especially that generation of Beckham, Scholes, Giggs and now I’m playing in their team and I am proud of that.
“I’ve been at the club for more than six years now, I’ve had a lot of good memories, with European titles like the Europa League and winning the FA Cup and winning the Carabao Cup, a cup I had never won and I was especially happy to win it.
