    He shows off the new Number 8 shirt


    Q> David how delighted and how surprised are you to have Juan Mata beside you?


    “I’m thrilled, I got wind of it a month or two ago that it could be a possibility but I never believed we could pull it off and actually I’ve been saying in all press conferences I didn’t think we could get a chance to do much business in January, I didn’t think the players we’d be interested in would be available but what we got the sniff that there was a chance that Juan could be available then we went after it right away, and congratulations to the club and Ed Woodward for getting the deal done and we are delighted to have him here.”


    Q. How could he transform what Manchester United do?


    DM “Well I think we said when I came in, we were going to have a difficult summer, summer period when we arrived in, that window was going to be tough, we had a chance to look at everybody, we’re only in the next window, I’ve already said we will be making changes and Juan’s the first.”


    Q. Juan, how easy or hard was that decision to come to Manchester United?


    “Well, obviously coming here is a great moment for me, I feel very happy to be here, to have the chance to play in a massive club like this, obviously the last six months at Chelsea were a bit difficult for me but now I am really happy and looking forward to win as many trophies as I can with this club because I am sure it’s going to be a great period for me.”

    Q. What excites you the most, the players you’re playing with or the chance to create some new history with Manchester United?


    JM: “Everything, everything. I think the history of the club, the players that they have in the squad, they are top players and I have to say that the welcome was unbelievable for me, coming here by helicopter, the welcome from the manager, from the players and the club, even from the fans in social media has been unbelievable so I’m really grateful and the only thing I want to do is just play because I’m looking forward to play and try my best for the team, to help the team and give this confidence back.”

    Q. You were twice player of the league at Chelsea how you can explain from going from that to suddenly hardly getting a game at Chelsea? None of us can quite understand the process behind that?


    JM “Well I think that’s football. In football everything is possible, almost everything is possible. To be honest the first two seasons at Chelsea for me they were amazing, I settled down so quickly, the fans were unbelievable for me, the club, everything, so the last six months were difficult because I didn’t play as much as I wanted but I respect that, I mean Jose is a very good manager, the squad is unbelievable they have top, top players, they have one of the best squads in the PL, so I respected all my team-mates so I just tried my best in every training, and in every game in the minutes that I had, but when Man Utd came it was a great option for me to carry on with my career.”


    Q> Would you have gone anywhere else but Manchester United? It’s unusual for big clubs in England to transfer between, Utd have obviously paid a lot of money for you, was it always going to be Manchester United or would you have considered other places in Europe?


    “Nah, I just wanted to go to a place where I knew I would feel happy and I am really happy now and I knew that Man Utd is massive club, I think is England is a club with most fans around the world so is a big challenge for me to be here and I think it will be amazing for my career as well, it is a big step and I think everything will be fine, with the squad that we have with the players that will come in the summer, everything is going to be fine and I think this club will be successful for sure.” (Red News: has mOyes told Mata our signings, have then been done early… now that would be good!)


    Q. Why the number 8 shirt, many people thought you were going to get the Number 7 shirt here which is available and very iconic shirt, were you offered that shirt, or did you turn it down or did you choose Number 8? What was the process?


    Unofficial quality cheap t-shirts at http://rednews.bigcartel.com/


    JM: Well I think Number 8 is a great name, a great number as well, I like the number, I know that 7 is an iconic number here but I was speaking with David about it and we decided that 8 is a good number for me and hopefully will bring me good luck for the next season.”


    Q. Juan, where would you like to play in this Manchester United team? Which position?


    “Ha, I think that is a question for him (points to Moyes) (Red News: good answer!). I would like to play anywhere! I would like to try my best, to try to assist and score, that’s what I like to do and I will try my best to improve as a player, to grow, to help the team as much as I can.”

    Q. Does it feel like you’re joining a bigger club?


    “I have a feeling it’s a massive club, to be honest since I came, the training ground, the fans, the club, everything is massive so I’m really glad to be here, probably Manchester in the history of the PL, obviously is the team that has won most trophies so I think it’s going to be great and I’m very happy for that.” (RN, translation - much bigger!)


    Q. Do you feel under more pressure being here, and with the price tag that comes with it?


    “Well I like the pressure, I think it’s good for a footballer to try to improve when you have pressure on you and when the people is expecting big things from you and I am really looking forward to do it, I’m looking forward to trying my best and to help the team and make all this amazing fans happy.”


    Q. Given the size and pedigree of this club, is it a step up in your career?


    “Well looking at the last six months, I wasn’t playing a lot, it is like a new challenge for me and I think in your career sometimes you need to change your minds, no? To clear your mind and take the chance that you have and I think this one was a massive chance for me, to carry on with my career in England, I think the PL is a very, very good league for me, I feel really happy in this country so I think that was the moment and that was the club.”


    Q. How you have been treated in the last six months, has it knocked your confidence as a footballer…


    Karen Shotbolt: “We’re moving on now from Chelsea, we’re moving on…”

    Q. When you have watched Manchester United this season on the tv, what have you thought in your opinion about the club?


    JM: “To be honest what I liked the most about this club is the character it has, the character. I think if another club they would be in this position in the league it would be very, very difficult for them to come back and to take to the first position but I think this club can do it, always can do it because this club is used to fighting to the end, it’s used to getting the results that they want until the end, with character and fight on the pitch and I think this is the real feeling I have from Manchester United, always trying to win titles, always fighting for every title and always coming back from difficult moments.”


    Q. How confident are you that you can be a player who comes at a moment when the league needs a lift and you can be that player who gives them that lift to get in the title league positions they want to be in?


    “I hope so, I hope so I will just try to enjoy (Red News: we plan to enjoy watching!), it’s time for me to enjoy, to try to show the football that I have inside me, that I showed the last seasons in London, and that’s what I want to do, I think the team is really good, the squad is really good, I think this season they had some unlucky moments that they didn’t deserve so I think this change could be from now and hopefully it’s going to be better until the end of the season. We will win as many games as we can.”

    Q> How important was this move in terms of the World Cup and your ambitions?


    “Well, it was really important, because as you know in the SPanish squad is really difficult to get in, a lot of players are fighting for positions to be in the last 23 going to Brazil so I hope it’s going to be a great chance for me as well to keep playing, to keep being fit and to keep showing to the manager of the national team that I want to be there, and I have to be there.”

    Q> Do you think you would have lost that chance if you hadn’t have made this move?


    “I don’t know, I mean now I am here, now the moment is here and I try to play as much as I can, to try and help the team, obviously if things are good in the last part of the season the World Cup is going to be closer for me, for sure.”

    Q. What has David De Gea said about playing here? What has he said maybe about the fans and what you can expect here


    “He was texting me the last week, the whole days, he texted me things that I knew before, I mean he told me that the fans are unbelievable, no matter if you are in a good or bad moment they are always behind you, supporting you (Red News: just ignore twitter Juan!), he told me the guys in the squad are really nice and to be honest all the team-mates they have been very good for me in the welcome, that the club is massive, that the fans we have around the world is unbelievable, that the manager was very good so all that he said was really good and now I’m realising that he was right.”

    Q. David you said on MUTV that this is just the start, is this just the start of transfers like this one? Obviously this is a club record or are you talking more in terms of the actual rebuilding work that you need to do with your squad


    DM: “Both (Red News: Oh David you tease), I think we’ll be looking to do both as part of our rebuilding process going on but also there will be more players like Juan in the future, I have got no doubt about that.”

    Q. Juan, a lot of experts have spoken about that lack of a magician in the midfield for United this season, but following your signing people are now asking how you and Rooney can link up in the same attacking unit, how do you think you and Wayne will be a nice attacking partnership?


    JM: “well I can’t wait to play alongside him. For me he’s one of the best players in the history of this country, he’s unbelievable, he’s a striker that he score, he can assist, he can come to the midfield to take the ball and to try to move so I think I will enjoy a lot alongside him, for me he is an unbelievable player and I will try and connect with him as much as I can, I will try to find the gaps between the rival defences because I was used to do this in the last season so I think that’s my best kind of playing, to try and be in the position that I have to be to try to assist the strikers.”

    Q. You’ve moved out of the Champions League for this season to be here, was that a bit sacrfice, and how important is it to be back in the CL next season and get that top four finish this season?


    JM: “Yeah I think, it’s really really important for the club and for all of us, to get in those positions, to finish the PL in a position that will give us the opportunity to play in the CL next season and I think it is what this club deserves for sure because this club is always playing in the CL and it is the tournament is has to play.”

    he said to Spanish journo “It was a good lesson to not play at Chelsea, it helped him to learn about football, it helped him become stronger and helped him deal with life.”


    “the move has been perfect for him, for Chelsea, and for United and it’s very good for me personally.”


    “What I liked the most about United is the fact that they bought me here by helicopter! Which not many clubs are able to do that, and the fact that he met David De Gea first of all and it is a wonderful club and a good detail to come by helicopter.”


    (Red News, impressed with him, way he spoke, all he said really. He looks quality off pitch, and sure to be on it!).
