As Manchester United gears up to face Galatasaray in tonight’s crucial Champions League fixture, there will be one particularly interested observer in the crowd.

Juan Mata, a beloved figure among both sets of supporters, has graced the jerseys of both the Red Devils and Gala during his illustrious career.

When the talented attacking midfielder arrived from Chelsea, he instantly won hearts with his exceptional work ethic and undeniable talent. In retrospect, it remains baffling that Chelsea allowed such a gifted player to join a Premier League rival.

Yet, for all his 285 appearances in a United shirt, what might have frustrated fans most was the lack of silverware to commemorate his dedicated performances.

Although he managed to secure the Europa League, FA Cup, and League Cup during his tenure in Manchester, these achievements felt modest for a club with the rich history of the Red Devils.

Nonetheless, when Mata bid farewell to Old Trafford and embarked on a new journey to Turkey in September 2022, he left with the warmest regards of United faithful.

Despite his relatively brief 18-game stint with Galatasaray, Mata’s departure was accompanied by a heartfelt Instagram tribute spanning over 400 words—an undeniable testament to his character.

It was within this tribute that Mata revealed a wish to his former teammates for the upcoming season—a wish that could potentially disrupt United’s aspirations if granted.

Towards the conclusion of his lengthy message, the 35-year-old added, “We were able to work together selflessly with the same objective, and that was key to our success. I will miss you! All the best to all of you, please bring the Champions League to Nef Stadium!”

Remarkably, albeit after just one matchday, Galatasaray finds itself closer to realizing this ambition than the Reds.

An initial defeat to Bayern Munich in Germany has elevated tonight’s clash to a must-win situation if United intends to stay within striking distance of the top two.

Should the unthinkable occur and the Red Devils succumb to another defeat, profound questions will be raised about Erik ten Hag and his squad. Meanwhile, the Turkish side will find itself one step closer to fulfilling Mata’s heartfelt wish.
