Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata admits he is pretty calm about his future, even though he does not know where he is going to be playing next season.

The Spain international has picked up his form since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but is out of contract in the summer, and with the uncertainty over the managerial position at Old Trafford, no new Red Devils deal is on the table for the former Chelsea ace.

The creative star is now allowed to take to non-English clubs over a free transfer exit in the summer, but he seems to be in no rush to negotiate a move away from Manchester United, even though he has admitted he would like to return to Spain at some point.

The Red Devils ace could yet agree and sign a new contract at Old Trafford, with him recognising that he is playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, and as a 30-year-old there is still plenty for him to offer the English powerhouse.

Mata was in Madrid on Thursday picking up a special award for his charity work, and he revealed a little bit about his future and how he feels about the situation.

“I’ve been in England for a while, but it’s true that at times you miss home, your family, your friends,” Super Deporte quote him as saying.

“But I don’t know if I’ll return to Spain in the near future. I’m calm, I’m at the fantastic club that is Manchester United, one of the biggest in the world.”

Much of Mata’s future at Manchester United could depend on who the club appoint as the permanent successor to Jose Mourinho, but in the meantime, the Spain international looks to be in the mood to try and get the Red Devils back to a position where they feel they should be after a difficult first half of the season.
