Official: Manchester United sign Juan Mata

Michael Steele

Juan Mata is now a former Chelsea player

There are no more holdups in the Juan Mata deal, as Manchester United have now made the signing official. Chelsea's two-time player of the year will now be wearing the ugly red shirt of Manchester United, as opposed to the beautiful blue of Chelsea.

Hopefully, we'll still have a few lovely parting gifts for Mata at the end of this season. He made 11 appearances for the Club in the Premier League, meaning that he'll receive a winner's medal should we go on to capture the title. He's also taken part in the Champions League with Chelsea this season, meaning he'll likely get a medal from the club should we go on to win the competition.

Here's hoping Juan Mata enjoys his time in Manchester, along with the substantially larger wage that he'll now receive. Play well against Manchester City and Arsenal, Juan, it will make most of us feel better about having to see you in that awful shirt.
