MATA NO LONGER EXPECTED TO MAKE MLS MOVE

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is no longer expected to leave the club anytime soon, contrary to reports that he could be leaving Old Trafford and nearing a move to the United States Major League Soccer. The Spanish midfielder is already confirmed to no longer be a key player under United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjaer but the Norwegian boss believes that he could still be able to count on the former Chelsea man this season.

He was linked with a move to Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy and was also rumored to be closing in on a move to the United States outfit but he remained under the management of Solksjaer and agreed to continue being a Manchester United player.

HOW WILL ZLATAN BE REMEMBERED AT LA GALAXY

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not only one of the most lethal and prolific strikers of his generation, but he is also one of the most controversial footballers of all time. He has a dramatic way of infusing his talent and controversy into his game and it is one of the numerous traits that make him stand out from other football stars. Despite being one of the best strikers of all time, he is rarely talked about and the reason for that has been largely credited to how he has a sarcastic answer or response to every question thrown at him or just any random sarcastic statement during an interview or press conference.
