Juan Mata has hailed Manchester United’s three new signings from the 2019 summer window.

While the club hierarchy did fail to conduct transfer business to the satisfaction of the fan-base, supporters have been left impressed with the players that did arrive.

The likes of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire have all improved the quality of the squad, while displaying positive performances on the pitch.

They have also succeeded in leaving a good impression on Juan Mata, who has heaped loads of praise on the trio.


Reaction Of Juan Mata And Herrera To De Gea’s Contract Announcement

Speaking first about Wan-Bissaka, the Spaniard told The Times: “He’s very, very good in defensive duties, very good in tackling. I’ve never seen any player like him, he’s unbelievable.

“Even in training you think you’re past him and then he comes and takes the ball straight. He has very long legs! I can only see him improving. Like Anthony (Martial), he’s a shy, reserved guy but confident on the pitch.”

Then coming onto the pacey Daniel James, Mata added: “Daniel has also made a very good start of the campaign, and everyone can see how quick he is.”

Lastly, when asked if Maguire is capable of becoming a future Manchester United captain, the playmaker responded: “Why not? He has experience.

“His physical presence is important, centre back is a good position to be a commanding personality in the team, and he has international experience. He’s come to a big club, really having a chance to make that next step towards to even more.”
