Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to speculations linking Juan Mata away from the club this summer transfer window.

Juan Mata might be one of the oldest players in the Man United team but he is also one of the most effective ones and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot hide his expression in discussing how much the player means to the team.

While fielding questions from the press, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated that there is no way he will allow Juan Mata to leave the team because of his impact and the quality he gives to the team.

The Red Devils boss stressed that there cannot be an exit discussion about a player who is an example to others in the team.

However, Juan Mata has been an impressive player at the Old Trafford and has been showered with praise by pundits after his performance in the last Carabao Cup game.

There are possibilities that Man United will get rid of some players but definitely not Juan Mata who is a major force in the team. The likes of Chris Smalling and Diogo Dalot might be leaving the club this summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are still working hard to bring in players that will complement the efforts of Juan Mata.
