Juan Mata will withdraw from Manchester United on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer.

The 34-year-old midfielder who helped Spain win the 2010 World Cup, cost United a then club-record £37.1m when he joined from Chelsea in 2014.

Mata, who earned 51 goals in 285 appearances for United, played in seven Premier League games last season.

The club declared on Wednesday that Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard would leave Old Trafford this summer.

“Thank you for committing eight years of your career to United, Juan,” the club stated

“Everyone at the club wishes you all the best for the future.”

Mata, who accepted a one-year contract extension with United last July, won four trophies with the club, including the FA Cup in 2016, and the Community Shield, League Cup, and Europa League in the 2016-17 season.
