This.I really want him to stay, give him this one season to prove himself under a top manager with better players around him. None of this selling him to Everton for £20m bollocks please.
Right because Mhiki and Mata can't play on the right because... ??He looked like a man possessed. Wanted to get involved in anything and everything. Even had a nasty follow through tackle on Powell, very unlike Mata. It would be foolish to right off any players based on their previous season form (Except Fellaini) considering we had LVG running his circus. Mata along with Memphis and Januzaj need one season under Mourinho.
Why would he hate him? Just drama queens inventing stories again.So there goes the theory that Mata was forced out of Chelsea because Jose hated him.
And Jose makes it very clear that Mata has a role to play if he wants to.
Well then I can't help you there. If you think he'd be a poor fit for our side, that's understandable but "my God is he average" to a player that was arguably the best of the league for 2 seasons is ridiculous to sya.Not really. As I said in my post, I've felt this way about Mata since he was at Chelsea.
He was good in a poor Chelsea side, and I never had him as one of the best in the league. I liked him at Valencia, but the more I watched of him at Chelsea the less I rated him.Well then I can't help you there.

Agree with this. I think with Mata it just shows that how much a certain system can make a player look much better than he is. There was no doubt that Mata was excellent at Chelsea but for United and Spain he just hasn't looked the same. For the money we would get back for him I would rather just keep him, he does have moments of excellence, regardless of the patchy form.He's a useful #10 to have at the club. With squad players as bad asLingard and Depay we can't afford to get rid of a decent player like Mata.
