Rio Ferdinand gives his verdict on Juan Mata's future

Juan Mata is out of contract at the end of the season.

The Spanish midfielder scored the winning goal in United’s 2-1 win over Wolves on Sunday night.

He is out of contract in the summer and there are no announcements yet over his future.

Man United legend Rio Ferdinand believes the 33-year old should be handed a contract extension just for his influence in the dressing room.

“I expect he might be somewhere with a warmer climate, warmer weathers,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“I think he’s earned the right to have a choice if he wants to go somewhere he can relax and enjoy his football.

“You never know, they could extend his contract here. He’s got a great calming influence within that dressing room and there will be young players looking at him who watch him on a day-to-day basis.

“He’s a great trainer, always brings quality and he applies himself correctly.”
