The new Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has not taken long to get to work after replacing Louis Van Gaal. Seems like the Portuguese coach already had his preferences sorted out for the new club. He is eyeing many players to sign, but also transfer listing many to ensure their departure from the club before it’s too late.
Jose Mourinho has already decided Juan Mata and Daley Blind are additional to what is required at Manchester United, according to Sky Sports. He sold Juan Mata to Manchester United for £37 million in January 2014 after the Spanish international was crowned as the Chelsea’s player of the year for two consecutive times, had spent most of the first part of that season on the bench.
Blind, meanwhile, has been a solid, if not fantastic, signing since his arrival from Ajax following the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The Special One is rumored to be looking for a more physical existence at the heart of his defence and would be willing to part with Blind, should his new club be given a satisfactory offer.
It may be a wise decision from Mourinho’s perspective, but letting go of two of the important players at the club doesn’t seem so wise at all.
Juan Mata has been one of the best, if not the best, at the midfield in the team. Also, even having won nothing but an FA Cup trophy at Manchester United, he is still considered to be one of the best midfielders in the Barclays Premier League. His linkups with teammates on the pitch, his accurate passes: long and short, and important match winning goals had made him one of the most important and experienced players in the team during Van Gaal’s era. Jose Mourinho should get rid of the grudges for the sake of his new club, and find a way to use the genius playmaker.
On the other hand, Dailey Blind has done nothing, but hard work since his arrival at Old Trafford. He got welcomed at the club very delightfully and got mixed with his teammates very easily. He gave up his role as the defensive midfielder or left-back to play as the centre-back when his team needed, and he did for most of the 2015/16 season. He did get inconsistent with his performance, but always gave his 100% at the back, and was almost always on par with his defensive partner Chris Smalling. Jose Mourinho should once again, reconsider the Dutch defender’s immediate future.
