Man United suffer Juan Mata injury setback

Man United suffer Juan Mata injury setback

Manchester United are set to be without Juan Mata for two weeks through injury.

Mata, 32, was conspicuous by his absence for United's Europa League round-of-32 second leg with Real Sociedad and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer later confirmed the Spaniard is out for a fortnight with an unspecified injury.

United have not triggered the one-year option in Mata's contract to keep him until next year and he is about to enter the last four months of his existing deal.

Mata missed five matches recently as he had 'been away', according to Solskjaer, and he is expected to be unavailable for the three Premier League away games with Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Manchester City, as well as United's Europa League round-of-16 first-leg against AC Milan.
