According to the Manchester Evening News, Mata could miss the rest of the 2016/17 season after undergoing groin surgery on Thursday.

The 28-year-old’s setback puts him on the list of several United players currently on the shelf, including Paul Pogba, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.

Mata has scored 36 goals across all competitions for the Red Devils since arriving at Old Trafford in 2014, including 10 goals during the current campaign for Jose Mourinho’s side.
