Exclusive: Man United boss Mourinho will flog £20m Mata again to make space for Pogba

It was Mourinho who sold the Spanish international to United for a then record £37.1m because he wanted him to play wider and didn’t work hard enough defensively. 

Mata, 28, has scored 26 times in 104 appearances for United but the writing looked to be on the wall for the end of his stay as soon as Mourinho was appointed. 

And even though he wants to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his first-team place, Mourinho has already made up his mind and is ready to sell him again. 

Mata, who spent most of last season playing on the right, is one of the most popular figures in the United dressing room.
