Juan Mata speaks out on Manchester United future ahead of Barcelona clash

It has been reported, that Manchester United ready to offload Juan Mata, however, the player himself insists he is not focusing on speculation over his future.

Mata, whose contract expires this summer, has so far failed to sign an extension.

The Spaniard told the Manchester Evening News: “I don’t think right now is a good moment to speak about it. Because I prefer to put the team before myself and what we are going to face now is important enough to be focused only on that.

“There have been some rumours about myself and other teammates over the last week, so I’m not the one who is going to put more questions or raise more comments with what I say.

“So I prefer to put the team before me and focus on the important task that we have ahead, which is Barcelona. And that’s it. I’m sure the fans prefer that because we all want to beat Barcelona, we want to have our heads focused on Barcelona.

“And, again, I don’t want to raise any more noise that, to be fair, in the last weeks there has been quite a lot.”

The 30-year-old has been linked with a move to Barcelona. However, for the near future, Mata will only deal with Barca in the Champions League quarterfinals.

United taking on the La Liga leaders on Wednesday, April 10.
