Neville insists United, who sit seventh in the Premier League would benefit by bringing in new blood in January and can see the benefits of bringing in a big name before the transfer window closes.
But the former United full-back does not think Spain international Mata would slot comfortably into the current team.
"Does he fit with what I would call the typical philosophy of Manchester United? I would say no," he said.
Meanwhile, Neville's Monday Night Football sparring partner Jamie Carragher claimed that he would see the big-money arrival of Mata as a sign that either Wayne Rooney or Robin Van Persie could be set to leave in the summer.
"You talk about Rooney and Van Persie, (if Mata came in) I would then be thinking, does that mean that one of them is going to go in the summer? I'm not trying to be mischievous or cause a problem by saying that, I just think if you're spending that much money on a player, he's going to play and he (Mata) has got to play off the front," he stated.
