Are his days numbered?

Juan Mata must be the unluckiest footballer in England right now. Joining Manchester United after being cast out of his plans by Jose Mourinho at Chelsea two years ago his former boss is now at the helm of his current club.

It might be a case of Deja Vu for Mata. With the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, it looks like the Spaniard will once again have to find another club to play at. But there is still hope that Mourinho might decide to keep him at the club.

He might have six months to impress Mourinho until the January transfer window comes around but there are still a lot of reasons why the Portuguese should consider keeping the playmaker.

5) One of the most consistent players 

Some of you might disagree with this but Mata has been performing at consistent level  barring his one bad season Mata has been very crucial to all the clubs he has played for so far in his career. 

This is a guy who was voted Chelsea’s player of the season for the first two years he was at the club, was one of the most creative forces along under Van Gaal’s first season in charge and also created the most number of chances in a Red shirt for United last season.

Yes, sometimes he does frustrate and go off the boil on occasion but there is no denying his quality and at 28 he still has a few good years left in him. Mourinho and Mata do have a past but there is no reason why both of them can’t put that behind them.
