Juan Mata rejected a whooping £375k-a-week post-tax wages to join Chinese Super League club


Manchester United's Juan Mata has become some sought of a model at the club in recent years, conducting himself well on and off the pitch and contributing largely of in-depth interviews for the media. The Spaniard is helping the economy too with his new tapas and wine bar.

As he came across such, it was not surprising to learn of his loyalty to Mourinho's side. He reportedly down a whooping £375k-a-week post-tax wages offer to join an unrevealed Chinese Super League club in September.

The mouth-watering bids from China have stuttered to a standstill in the last few months, after sanctions and rules were placed on clubs by the Chinese government to prevent an uncontrollable bidding war situation in the global game. However, there is still room for isolated bids like these.

Mata is currently earning £170k-per-week at Old Trafford, but the dreams of additional luxury have not polluted the 29-year-old's mind, as a United source speaking to The Sun attested to. 

"Juan was offered a sizable amount of money to go to China", the source said. "They were visiting last month and made it to his reps."

"He sees his future here though and is determined to stay. He hasn't got long left but the option on his contract will almost certainly be taken up."
