“It’s a very happy day for me, meeting my team-mates, the manager, seeing the training ground,” he said. “It’s a massive club and I feel very proud to be here.”

Mata also reflected on how it felt when he first heard that United wanted to sign him.

“I thought, ‘wow’! This is a team that has won a lot of leagues in the history of the Premier League and English league. It’s amazing knowing that a club like Manchester United is interested in you. It’s a good feeling.”
