Cape Town - Attacking
midfielder Juan Mata has expressed his desire to continue playing for
Manchester United next season as he aims for more trophies.
The Spaniard's current contract is due to expire at the end of next
season, with an option to add another year, but he insists he hasn't
considered going anywhere else.
“I’m happy here,” said Mata, according to the Manchester Evening News.
“I cannot control what people will think. It’s always been the same,
every single summer. But I can control myself and my aim, and my head is
focused on trying to win trophies here and still having a contract
“I’ve always said that since I came here it has not been the greatest
moment in the club’s history. It’s been a different approach and a new
stage after Sir Alex Ferguson. We’ve had a few managers, different
players coming and going, but I feel really happy to be at this club.
“I feel privileged to play for Man United. It is something when I’m old I will always be proud of."
Mata made 25 Premier League appearances for Jose Mourinho's men this season, scoring six goals and assisting in three.
