Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Spain international Juan Mata put pen to oaper on a new contract extension at the Old Trafford.
The 2010 World Cup winner could be parting ways with the Red Devils at the end of the season, with his current contract set to expire this summer and an extension deal is yet to be offered to the midfielder.
The Reds boss revealed to Sky Sports his future plans with the Spanish player, who has been with the club for five years now, and does not want him to leave this summer.
Speaking, Solskjaer said: “He’s a fantastic person and a fantastic player.
“It’s up to him. I’ve had words with him and he knows how highly I regard him.
“I was so pleased for him last week; it would have been so much nicer for him to sit there and talk about Juan scoring the winning goal against Chelsea.
“He’s a top pro and let’s see if they manage to agree.”
