The Spain international had been declared surplus to requirements by the manager during his time at Chelsea, which led to his Old Trafford move.

And he revealed that in the Special One’s first few days at his new club, those closest to him feared a repeat of that situation.

“The manager didn’t sit down with me, no,” Mata told reporters.

“I do feel an important part of this team. Since I came to Manchester United, we had ups and downs but I always felt an important player under any manager, and I feel important now. But we didn’t have any conversations.

“It is difficult to control everything that goes out and your friends and family are ringing to know what is going on but I always told them the same thing – ‘Listen, I am the one that knows what is going on, and I know that nothing is going on.”

The former Valencia man went on to insist that he had a healthy relationship with Mourinho, whose United team are back in action on Thursday against Fenerbahce in the Europa League.

“When the manager came in, I was always thinking the same as I always have – I am going to give my best, I believe in myself and I think this can work out.

“It is a professional relationship [I have with Mourinho]. That is it. That is why, when so many things were said about was going to happen when the new manager arrive, in my mind I had it clear.”
