Juan Mata is coming to Manchester United for a record transfer signing fee for the footballer club and his arrival makes many footballer fans and commentators wonder if this is only the first of many signings that will occur in 2014 for the esteemed football club. Juan Mata is coming to the team from Chelsea having lost his position in the starting eleven to not one but three other players, Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar, despite being the Chelsea's player of the year for the past two seasons.
This might turn out to be a great signing for Manchester United as they get a player who is very likely incredibly angry at having been deemed replaceable despite being the best player on his previous team the past two seasons and thus will have much to prove to the footballer world, especially opponents in the Premier League that he is still an exceptionally talented footballer.
Juan Mata's presence in the Manchester United midfield will provide them with creativity that has been lacking all seaon but even the average footballer fan will know that the team will need to add some more talent during the summer signing period if they plan to return to the top of the league.
However, the signing of Juan Mata might have a bigger purpose and that is to let agents around the world know that Manchester United is willing to spend whatever money it takes to bring in new talent. The signing fee for Juan Mata is a new record signing amount for a player but it would be inconceivable to think that the team is going to pay Mata more than Rooney or van Persie or even some other star players they may bring to the squad in the future.
The signing of Juan Mata by Manchester United may be a direct sign to the agents of the best footballers in the world similar to a "Batman" light in the sky that the team intends to open the cheque book and bring the best footballers to Manchester United as they move to return to the team back to the top of the Premier League.
