Man Utd ace Mata: Premier League games overseas will happen 'sooner rather than later'

Updated: Apr 16, 2020

Man Utd star Juan Mata is convinced Premier League games will be played abroad shortly. There have been discussions about the English top-flight game being held outside the country over the years, but with no agreement on the matter. However, Manchester United midfielder Mata believes the commercial and financial demands will eventually lead to top-flight games being played overseas and says it will be good for fans. “I think this is something that might happen eventually,” said the 31-year-old, who has two more years to run on his United deal was quoted saying by the Mirror. “We've seen it in different sports, we've seen it with some sports played abroad and they are still in competitions. “I don’t know if it will happen or not but, because of the way football seems to be going, it might happen sooner rather than later. “It will be great for our fans around the world, to be honest. It will be great to see us play live, playing for competitive points. “It will be difficult to organise to be honest, and also a little bit unfair for the people that live in the UK who go to every single game. “So there's a little bit of a discussion there to speak deeper about it, but I think that it will happen in football.”
