Manchester United’s record signing Juan Mata has stated that he wants to be part of the team from a central position. Mata made his name at Valencia as winger, but he was used in a more central position at Chelsea under both Roberto di Matteo and Rafa Benitez.
This proved to be a master stroke, as the Spaniard dominated the matches with innovation, vision, and goalscoring abilities. He has been one of the leading assist makers in Europe over the last five years. However, since his move to United, Mata has been used out wide by David Moyes.
