Manchester United’s new signing Angel di Maria is clearly settling down well into his new life in England, thanks in no small part to a burgeoning relationship with his new team-mates and, in particular, Juan Mata.
As soon as Di Maria arrived at United, Mata helped him and for a player who has been at United for less than a year, it is a testament to his character.
Mata and Di Maria trained together in his first few days at the club, arrived at Burnley away together, warmed up before the match together and have been doing the same this week ahead of United’s trip to Leicester.
Just like David de Gea helped Mata when he arrived in January, Mata seems to be doing the same for Di Maria and for a player who has arrived in a new country where he doesn’t speak the language, it must really help.
The only problem here is that De Gea and Herrera might start getting jealous very soon if they have to share Mata with others…
