Juan Mata is a bloody lovely person.
He’s always smiling, writing blogs and being an all round lovable little Spaniard, but he doesn’t have much luck with transfers.
Jose Mourinho seems to look at Mata the same way most people look at Pepe – he just wishes he would piss off somewhere else.
Ever since Jose was announced as the new Manchester United manager, people were quick to point out that Juan was absolutely fucked.
Mourinho sold Mata to United while Chelsea manager, and is expected to do the same as he trims his squad at Old Trafford.
Everton is the most likely destination, with Ronald Koeman eyeing a reunion with his former Valencia player.
But Mata has responded to the rumours while signing autographs and taking selfies at Man United’s training ground – because he’s a loveable bastard.

So we can assume that Mata has seen the endless meme’s and tweets mocking him on social media, and thinks he’s in with a chance of staying at Old Trafford under Jose.
We’ll see, but the odds of the 28-year-old wearing Everton blue rather than United red next season are as likely as a Sergio Ramos yellow card.
