Juan Mata tried to play it cool when he walked on stage to announce Manchester United’s Players’ Player of the Year last night but he was probably just as excited to give David de Gea his award than the goalkeeper was to receive it.
The pair have been absolutely inseparable this season and the bromance has been growing ever since day one.
From the moment Mata came off the helicopter at Carrington and was greeeted by a warm embrace from De Gea, they’ve been in each other’s pockets.
They live on the same street. They share a car to training. It won’t be long before one of them sells their house and moves into the other one’s.
For now, they’ve got two awards to share courtesy of De Gea’s double success.

“You deserve it,” Mata simply said on De Gea’s awards.
