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 here.

“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.
