Now whether our Spanish international and one-time most expensive purchase, Juan Mata, is set to leave Manchester United this summer, we can only wait and see.
Mata, a valuable squad player, is now 31-years-of-age and at a period in his career where he isn’t a regular starter at Old Trafford.
However, if Mata decides that now is the time to leave in search of regular first-team football, where could he end up?
The tabloid publication, the Sun, carries an article today that could provide Mata with a difficult choice.
Our referenced source suggests that Newcastle United are set to rival Barcelona for the signature of the midfielder.
Clearly, a hard decision for Mata to make.
Does, if he’s given the opportunity, make a move back to his native Spain to sample the unique lifestyle a place in the Catalan city would present or would he prefer a journey to the north-east to sample the delightfully English weather that part of our country experiences throughout the football season?
I told you it’s a hard choice!
The Barcelona beer company or a bottle of the famous Newcastle brown!
Me, I’d plump for Newcastle, there’s something about that Geordie accent, on a woman, I can’t ignore!
