Juan Mata joins Manchester United summer exodus as contract expires | Manchester United

Manchester United have confirmed their long-serving midfielder Juan Mata is leaving when his contract expires at the end of June.

This is a summer of change at Old Trafford as Erik ten Hag takes charge and a number of big-name players head for the exit. United announced on Wednesday that Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were going and the departures of Nemanja Matic, Edinson Cavani and Lee Grant have also been confirmed.

Mata has won four trophies and made 285 appearances at United since joining from Chelsea in January 2014 for a then club record £37.1m.

“Thank you for dedicating eight years of your career to United, Juan,” a statement said. “Everyone at the club wishes you all the best for the future.”
