Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has revealed he is set for talks with Erik ten Hag over his future at Old Trafford.

The 34-year-old is out of contract in the summer, with no new deal agreed with the Spaniard as of yet.

The playmaker has spent the majority of the season on the bench, making just six appearances in the Premier League.

But Mata has talks planned with new United boss Ten Hag, with a decision yet to be made over his future.

The midfielder toldthere is a ‘conversation pending’ with the Dutch coach, who is set to meet the squad on Monday.

‘I will see when we speak how we feel, what his ideas are, after that a decision will be made,’ Mata added.

On the reasons why he signed a one-year extension last summer, Mata said: ‘First because I love the club, second because I hoped I could give much more on the pitch than I ended up doing, and third because last season was horrible for me, for many reasons, especially because of the passing of my mum

‘It wasn’t an easy season at all with the pandemic and that personal tragedy. I didn’t want to end my career at Manchester United that way, without fans in the stadium, with all that I have lived over the last months.

‘I am gonna be very honest, when we made the signings we made [last summer] I genuinely felt, “We are gonna really compete to win the Premier League now”. That’s why I renewed, I wanted to be part of that.

‘One of the things I always say: winning a massive trophy with Manchester United would be an incredible feeling after being here for so many years, knowing the fans and everyone working in the club like I do.’
