Juan Mata hopes to stay at Man Utd for many more years.

Midfield maestro Mata quashes rumours linking him with a move away from Man United by saying he is keen to stay for many more years.

Manchester United star Juan Mata is hoping he continues to ply his trade for many more years at Old Trafford.

The former Valencia and Chelsea attacking midfielder has spent just over six years at the Theatre of Dreams, and the next game he features in will be his 250th appearance for the Red Devils.

"It feels like it has gone very quickly, it feels like time flies,” the Spaniard said on the club’s Twitter page. “I didn't know it was going to be my 250th game, but I feel proud.

"When you play your first game you feel like you are in a new beginning, a very exciting moment in your life playing for this club. I don't want to stop here, I want to keep going and going, and keep adding games in a United shirt."

Mata joined United from west London side Chelsea in January 2014 for a reported fee of £37.1million and has won the FA Cup, EFL Cup, FA Community Shield and the UEFA Europa League so far.
