Juan Mata is close to agreeing a new contract with Manchester United, sources have told ESPN FC.
The Spain midfielder’s deal was set to expire on June 30 but after positive talks with the club, he is set to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
Mata was initially offered a one year extension but sources have told ESPN FC the two parties have now reached a longer agreement. The 31-year-old, who scored six times in 32 appearances, had been linked with moves to Barcelona and Juventus.
Club captain Antonio Valencia has also walked away after United decided against renewing his contract.
Mata has made 218 appearances since arriving from Chelsea under David Moyes in January 2014, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.
