Transfer expert Ian McGarry said in a personal podcast that Manchester United midfielder Mata received a generous offer from the Saudi team with an annual salary of $15 million after tax.
Ian McGarry said: "What we have learned is that Mata received an invitation from the Saudi team and received an annual salary of approximately $15 million after tax."
"Manchester United has not started negotiations with the opposing team, so we cannot disclose the name of the Saudi club yet, but we are sure that the offer received by Mata exists. Mata's father, who is his agent, believes Manchester United will Fang Mata leaves the Red Devils for free (the contract expires tomorrow)."
"Mata himself has not made any promises. However, with such a high salary, you have to think that he will be tempted. As we know, Saudi Arabia is eager to develop football and at the same time become a place where players yearn for high salaries and tax-free."
