Mata offered lucrative contract by Saudi Arabian club

Juan Mata has been offered a lucrative contract to leave Manchester United.

The Spaniard has yet to play in the Premier League for United this season.

Mata’s contract is up next summer and he could be set for one last payday.

According to transfer expert Ian McGarry, the 32-year-old has been offered a contract worth $15m-per-year from an unnamed club in Saudi Arabia.

“We will start at Old Trafford with a shock move for fan favourite Juan Mata, who has been offered a very, very lucrative deal to move from Manchester to Saudi Arabia.

“It’s our understanding that the offer that Mata has is worth around $15million net per year to go and play in the Saudi Arabian league.

“It’s not at this moment in time that Manchester United have entered negotiations, we can’t disclose the name of the club at this moment in time.

“But we are certain that the offer is there, his father, who is his agent, is confident that Manchester United would release Mata on freedom of contract after he had his contract extended by the optional year in his current deal over the summer.

“Mata himself is yet to commit; however, at those kind of numbers you would have to think he would be tempted.

“It certainly is the case that Saudi Arabia is desperate to promote itself as a footballing nation as we know, as well as being a place where players can earn an extremely high amount of money and it would be tax free.”
