Valencia CF to bring back Juan Mata

Valencia CF are going to try and bring back Juan Mata either this winter or in the summer as the player's contract with Manchester United will end in 6 months and he will become a free agent. Manchester United have no plans to extend his contract beyond the existing one, so the player is likely going to come back to Spain to finish his career. 

Juan Mata has had a horrendous season so far starting only few matches and on occasion not even sitting with the reserves, though truthfully Mata hasn't played regularly for United for over two seasons now and with his contract running out in just six months the player knows its his final time at Manchester United.

Juan Mata to return to Valencia CF?

Valencia CF is the logical team for him to return to, the club that launched his career essentially and where he established himself as a top talent. For Valencia CF its also a great move as the team sorely lacks experience and has often had troubles crating chances and being proficient in front of goal and Mata has a great eye for goals and is a true playmaker. He is not the defensive destroyer Bordalas wants, but I think we lack technique and control in midfield rather than just brute force. We need to more dominant midfield that is able to pass the ball around.

Other La Liga clubs have learned about Mata's situation and have already made advancements towards the player, hoping to lure him in. The player is going to come very cheap even if he is to leave in the winter as his contract is over very soon and he is 33 years of age, so at most Manchester United might ask for 2 million euros and they might settle for less as well.
