At £37.1m, Juan Mata is the most expensive player in Manchester United’s history.
However, the Spaniard expects to be a big success at the club, thanks to to the manager, his new team mates and the fans.
“I know it is a big price but I’m confident that everything is going to be okay. I will try my best as I always have done. The squad and the manager are very good and the fans are unbelievable – we have everything to be successful.”
Mata will likely make his debut next Tuesday when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returns with Cardiff, something our new signing is looking forward to.
“Old Trafford is an unbelievable stadium to play football at. I have been here two or three times but always with rivals and now I have the chance to play there as my home. It’s going to be different but it will be great because I know how incredible the fans are there.”
