On Thursday, June 2nd, 2022, Manchester United FC announced that Juan Mata will leave the club at the end of his contract in June 2022. During the January transfer window of 2014, the Spaniard moved to Old Trafford from Chelsea.
Mata is one of the most decorated footballers in history, having won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea in 2011/12. During the 2016/17 season, he went on to win three trophies under Jose Mourinho (Europa League, League Cup, and Community Shield).
Juan appeared in over 30 games in each of the 2017/18, 2018/19, and 2019/20 seasons, and despite his appearance totals dropping below 20 in the last two seasons, he remained a valuable member of the club. His coworkers and coworkers never stopped complimenting him on his professional demeanor and positive outlook.
