Juan Mata is closing on his Manchester United exit amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s latest admission.
The 32-year-old has found his playing time limited at Old Trafford, having started in just six matches this season.
The winger is nearing the end of his current contract, while United have the option of extending the deal. However, it seems the Red Devils have no intention to keep the attacker at the club any longer.
Solskjaer said: “The decision is very difficult every time with Juan. You know he’s got the quality. If he plays, he scores goals, he’s contributed this season.
“Then again, we’ve had other players who have taken his role as well – Mason [Greenwood] has done well in that position, Paul [Pogba] now, and Juan really contributes in and around the group.
“So it’s one of those that I have discussions with all the time, it’s difficult to leave him out but unfortunately that’s where it is at the moment, so no decision has been made there yet.”
