New Red man Juan Mata is ready to handle the fresh challenge with Manchester United. This season represents many changes for him…from blue to red – from 10 to 8.
Mata’s presence will definitely create positive changes in the performance of the squad for the new club. He is a good set-up man for strikers and should be a big factor in taking the team’s play to another level along with Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie.
Mata will be a Mesut Ozil for Manchester United, but will need to exercise some patience to adopt with Old Trafford. This change of environment should help him secure a place on the national team for Brazil in 2014.
He has many contenders on thenational squad and all of them represent some of the world’s best midfielders (Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fabregas, Xabi Alonso, David Silva and Santi Cazorla).
After signing with United, Mata is excited to join with Rooney and the rest of the team. Manchester United has a huge stable of midfielders, but this £37million man still has a great chance to find a place on the first team. He will be the favorite player behind ManU strikers.
David Moyes has really done a good move in January’s transfer window and said there is more to come. We can expect a couple of big signings in the summer transfer.
He picked No.8 in new club and commented: “I know seven is an iconic number here but I was speaking with David (Moyes) about it and we decided eight is a good number for me,” he said. “Hopefully, it will bring me good luck.”
Big man for this move David Moyes has thrilled with this special signing. He is looking for a significant improvement in the team.
Moyes said: “I didn’t think players would be available but, when we got a sniff that there was a chance Juan could be available, we went after it right away.
“We said the summer window would be tough but we’ve had a chance to look at everybody and now we will be making changes. Juan is the first.”
