Twitter reacts as Manchester United confirm Juan Mata contract extension

While most of the headlines coming out of Manchester United lately have been about who will be coming and going, they have today confirmed at least one player will be staying at the club, Juan Mata.

The Red Devils sh*tshow of a season has extended into the summer, with Ed Woodward’s scattergun approach to transfer dealings once again showing exactly why Manchester United need the director of football that he is dawdling to appoint.

While Messrs Pogba, Lukaku, Maguire, Diop, Wan Bissaka et al have all dominated the column inches of late, one piece of business that United have confirmed today is that Juan Mata will be taking time out of his busy blogging career to warm the Old Trafford bench for two, or maybe three more years.

The loveable Spaniard has penned a new deal until 2021, with United holding an option to extend it by a further year.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the news…

You can’t have it both ways…

Statman Dave pointed out how important Mata has actually been to Man Utd since moving from Chelsea…

And also suggested he could be an important player for United next season…

At least the news is ‘not a negative’…

Some chose to remember one of his greatest days in a Manchester United shirt…

But its fair to say many have been left questioning Manchester United’s decisions of late…

While MEN journalist Samuel Luckhurst provided a bit of well-needed perspective

Let’s hope for these despairing Manchester United fans that the rest of their summer business can bring some more positivity.
