Valencia, Real Betis and Real Sociedad all want to sign Manchester United attacker Juan Mata, according to a report.

Valencia, Real Betis and Real Sociedad are reportedly all interested in signing Manchester United attacker Juan Mata at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old's existing deal at Old Trafford is due to expire at the end of June, and it appears increasingly likely that the Spaniard will be allowed to leave the Red Devils on a free transfer.

Mata is currently on the sidelines through injury but has struggled for action throughout the 2020-21 campaign, making just 12 appearances in all competitions, with only seven of those coming in the Premier League.

According to Fichajes, the attacker is preparing to leave Man United at the end of the season and wants to finish his career back in Spain.

The report claims that Real Betis and Real Sociedad both want to sign the playmaker, while there is also interest from Mata's old club Valencia, where he spent four seasons before joining Chelsea.

The former Real Madrid youngster has scored 50 goals and registered 47 assists in 267 appearances for the Red Devils since arriving in January 2014.
