Mata ventured to England in 2011 after four seasons at Valencia and speaking earlier in the year, he hinted at a move back to Spain.

"I've been in England for a while, but it's true that at times you miss home, your family, your friends," he said.

"But I don't know if I'll return to Spain in the near future. I'm calm, I'm at the fantastic club that is Manchester United, one of the biggest in the world."
