Sorry Manchester United fans, here are five Juan Mata upgrades

IscoManchester United manager Louis van Gaal has come in for a fair bit of criticism this season for not playing the right formation – or the right players in said formations – but there is one player we have to whole heartedly agree leaves a bit of a question mark over his head.

Juan Mata may be a fan favourite and rightly so, and given the problems in the current United side, you can see why many think he should be starting week in, week out, but when considering if he would make the starting XI for the likes of Chelsea (nope, been there, done that) Manchester City (that would be a no) or Real Madrid (again, it’s a no and was from an early age) you begin to wonder just how good Mata really is.

While we are not saying the midfielder is a bad player – far from it – we just do not think he is world class and here are five players who are of a similar ilk to the Spaniard that we think are heads and shoulders above him.
