Manchester united Midfielder Juan Mata has been linked with a return to his boyhood club Valencia.
Juan Mata enjoyed a wonderful season at Valencia scoring 47 goals in 176 games before moving to chelsea in 2011 and then Manchester united in 2013 and has so far scoring 39 goals in 187 appearances for the club.
The 30-year-old midfielder has just one more year left in his contract with Manchester united, and is likely to run down his contract with reports his boyhood club Valencia are interested in bringing him back but only on free transfer as the Spanish club can not afford paying the midfielder anything close to his £130k weekly salary if they should have to spend the cash to sign him.
However the midfielder has never been in the game for the money and the football world knows that too well.
While Juan Mata leaving could free up a slot for united to sign a new player after claims the board had refused to sign for Jose if he fails to offload , the united faithfuls will most definitely miss the dynamic style of play the midfielder brings to the club.
Manchester united have a whole year to either extend his contract or bid farewell to the noble player as a free agent by next summer.
