Juan Mata sets out Man Utd stay plans

Juan Mata is eager to stay longer with Manchester United.

The Spaniard is approaching his 250th appearance for The Red Devils after arriving from Chelsea in 2014, scoring 48 goals and providing 42 assists in 249 games.

Speaking in a video on United's Twitter account, Mata said: "It feels like it has gone very quickly, it feels like time flies. I didn't know it was going to be my 250th game, but I feel proud.

"When you play your first game you feel like you are in a new beginning, a very exciting moment in your life playing for this club.

"I don't want to stop here, I want to keep going and going, and keep adding games in a United shirt."
