Manchester United have offered Juan Mata a new contract, but the midfielder has other options from Champions League teams, according to his father.

The 30-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Sky Sports News understands he has already held talks with Barcelona over a proposed move to the Nou Camp.

Mata has featured 29 times so far this season and his father, Juan Mata Senior, has revealed fresh terms have already been tabled by United.

"Manchester United have offered to renew us, we are very happy," he told Cadena SER.

"But there are proposals from Champions League teams.

"Spain, maybe, but today is not the day to talk, it is not yet decided."

Mata joined United from Chelsea in January 2014 for a then club-record fee of £37.1m and has since scored 44 goals in 215 appearances for the club.
