Manchester United star Juan Mata has refused to rule out a potential return to the La Liga.

The 28-year-old Spaniard will have only one year left to run on his contract at the end of this season.

It is a medal haul no doubt to make your eyes water. Juan Mata has won the World Cup, the European Championship, the Champions League, the Europa League, two FA Cups and a Copa del Rey.

But unfortunately six seasons have gone past in England, still the Premier League title is a dream for Mata.

Although he has won back the trust of Jose Mourinho, Mata is already contemplating life after Old Trafford. And interestingly he hasn’t ruled out the idea of moving back to La Liga where he made his name at Valencia.

When questioned about his future plans, the Man United midfielder told Spanish radio station Cadena SER: “I don’t know what will happen.

“I’ve been asked before, and I don’t know. I’ve been here six years, and I am happy in England.

“But I love Spain still and always follow La Liga from here. I would like to play again back at home.”
