According to the Spanish news outlet, Diario Sport, Juan Mata wants to swap Manchester United for Barcelona at the end of the season
The Spaniard’s contract with the Red Devils will run out in the summer, and he will be able to join a new club without a compensation fee.
Although several European heavyweights are interested in hiring Mata for free, the 31-year-old seems eager to land at Camp Nou once his contract with United expires.
Some recent reports have suggested that the Catalans consider taking former Chelsea star back to La Liga, as his characteristics perfectly fit Ernesto Valverde’s style of play.
Mata has fallen out of favor at Old Trafford since Ole Gunnar Soslkajer’s arrival, registering just six Premier League starts since December.
Since the parties have yet to find an agreement on contract extension, the left-footed playmaker will probably depart the Theatre of Dreams in the summer.
