|Manchester United Midfielder, Juan Mata Signs New One-year Deal by Insidenaija: 2:13pm On Jul 02|
Juan Mata has signed a new one-year contract with Manchester United, Newspremises reports.
The Spanish midfielder, who was signed from Chelsea in 2014, has made 273 appearances for United, scoring 51 goals and registering 47 assists.
He became a free agent when his contract ran out on Wednesday. But United have confirmed that Mata has signed a new deal at the club until June 2022.
A statement read: 'Manchester United is delighted to announce Juan Mata has agreed a one-year contract, keeping him at Old Trafford until June 2022.
Dubbed a magician on the pitch and a gentleman off it, Mata has become one of the most popular players in recent United history and he is highly respected by all of his teammates.
'With a new one-year contract agreed and pre-season training about to start at Carrington, Juan is raring to go in what will be his ninth campaign at United. Congratulations on your new deal, El Mago.'
The 33-year-old featured only 18 times for United last season.
The announcement for the 33-year-old's extension follows Thursday's confirmation that the club had reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for the signing of England forward Jadon Sancho in a deal worth £73m.
Sancho, 21, will undergo a medical following his involvement in Euro 2020 before completing his switch to Old Trafford.
