According to MEN, Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has revealed his desire to extend his stay at the club.

Speaking in a video on the club’s official Twitter account, the Spaniard 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,” said the midfielder, who has the option of extending his contract by a year.”

He added: “My first goal was against Aston Villa, at the Stretford End. It was a messy goal, not very beautiful, but I think it was eight or nine games without scoring for the club so it was very important for me.

“The goal in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace, we were losing and it was almost the end of the game, so when I scored I was also happy in that I helped the team to win.

“The game at Anfield, I always come back to it, why not? The Europa League final as well, I enjoy thinking about them, and hopefully, many more to come.”

Mata has scored a total of 33 goals for United and is one game away from making his 250th game for the club.
