There are fears that one of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s trusted players Juan Mata could be leaving Old Trafford before the end of October.

Juan Mata started this season on a positive note with an impressive performance and that has attracted praises from pundits and the club boss. He is no doubt an important player at the Old Trafford.

Reports now claim that the has a huge offer worth $15 million a year and that would be difficult to reject from a club in Saudi Arabia and they are keen to land him.

Juan Mata is no doubt a loyal Man United player but he will of course, fancy a new experience, especially as age is no longer on his side but the question is whether the Red Devils will allow him to leave or not.

His contract with the club runs out next summer and it is claimed that his father is interested in the deal from Saudi Arabia and hopes the Red Devils can let Juan Mata leave earlier.

Football consultant and transfer expert Ian McGarry has claimed that Man United are yet to open talks of a new contract with the player or with the suitors for either a stay or a move respectively.
