You don’t see many transfers like Juan Mata’s 37.1 million pound move from Chelsea to Manchester United, officially completed yesterday.
Manchester United fans are cock-a-hoop about Juan Mata joining, even for a record fee.
Mata himself, seemed torn to leave Stamford Bridge, and even went so far as to write a letter to Chelsea fans explaining the move and how it was such a wrench to leave.
The Spanish playmaker couldn’t even say a bad work about Jose Mourinho despite being left out of the Chelsea first team for the last six months.
And, before the 1-0 FA Cup win over Stoke on Sunday, Chelsea TV played out a tribute to Juan Mata to complete the circle.
We may never see a transfer likes this again, which is testament to what a class act Juan Mata is.
Wonder what will happen if Mata scores for Manchester United at Stamford Bridge next season?!
