Manchester United midfielder Juan Manuel Mata is reportedly closing in on a new contract with the Red Devils according to the latest media reports.
According to the Daily Mirror, Mata is closing in on an agreement with Manchester United over a new contract.
The 31-year-old Spanish international has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent weeks with several major European sides including Arsenal.
Juan Manuel Mata is still a Manchester United player after the Red Devils held on to him despite the fact that his contract expires this summer.
Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia were in the same situation, but both players have been released while Manchester United have held on to Mata.
According to an official statement from the club last month, the Spaniard has been offered a new deal but it must be pointed out that an agreement has not been reached between the player and Manchester United.
The new development suggests that an agreement between the two parties is in sight.
Juan Manuel Mata will almost certainly be staying at Manchester United rather than join Arsenal where he could have reunited with Gunners boss Unai Emery.
The former Chelsea star played for Arsenal manager Unai Emery while he was the Valencia boss before the player left Spain for Stamford Bridge.
