Report – Solskjaer ‘desperate’ to agree terms with £170,000-a-week Man Utd playmaker


Manchester United must strengthen their squad in the winter transfer window and they must also keep the current crop of key players at the club.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Juan Mata is an important player in the eyes of interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Solskjaer is ‘desperate’ to agree a new deal with the Spanish international. It is mentioned that United will look to offer Mata a one-year deal and reduce his current wages of £170,000-a-week.

Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd set to agree terms with their £75,000-a-week playmaker

Few days back, Turkish outlet SuperHaberTV reported that Fenerbahce has made an offer for the former Chelsea attacker, who is looking for a move away from Old Trafford.

At this moment, I do not think that wages would be Mata’s main concern. Instead, he will definitely be concerned with his playing time at the club.

In the current campaign, so far, the 30-year-old star has only started 9 league games. Moreover, in those 9 starts, he has only managed to play for full 90 minutes in just 2 fixtures.

The La Roja playmaker is one of the most gifted attackers in our team but unfortunately, he is past his best.

As a winger, Mata is way too slow and the likes of Lingard, Martial and Alexis are better. On the other hand, in the No.10 role, Solskjaer is now using our record signing Paul Pogba.

Therefore, in my view, the club should let him leave at the end of the season and sign a top quality replacement in the summer transfer window.
