Juan Mata sends hilarious cryptic message to Bruno Fernandes and David de Gea



| Last Updated:


Juan Mata, David de Gea, and Bruno Fernandes all became very close friends when all three played for Manchester United in the last few years.

Out of the trio, only Bruno Fernandes remains at Manchester United, with David de Gea now a free agent after leaving in the summer and Juan Mata also without a club. The 35-year-old most recently played for J1 League club Vissel Kobe after leaving Old Trafford in 2022, just before Erik ten Hag took over.

It has been no secret that the three of them have remained friends over the last few years, although Mata’s most recent social media post has left fans laughing, albeit slightly bemused.

Posting on social media platform X, Mata shared a photo of Bruno Fernandes and David de Gea posing side-by-side with a poster from the 1994 television series “Dumb & Dumber” directly beneath the pair.

“You can only ask,” was De Gea’s reply, accompanied by a laughing emoji and red heart emoji. No one knows quite knows what the motivation behind the post was, but it is safe to assume it was in jest.

Three United heroes

Bruno Fernanes, David de Gea, and Juan Mata all had significant contributions and long-lasting impacts at Manchester United.

At his peak, De Gea was considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world and helped keep United afloat during some tough times—although his tenure at Old Trafford ended sour last summer.

Juan Mata was signed in January 2014 for a then-Premier League record fee of £34 million from Chelsea, where he enjoyed eight brilliant years at the club. He scored some crucial goals and won four trophies.

Bruno Fernandes is the current club captain and has de facto led the side ever since he signed for United in January 2020. He will no doubt be remembered as one of United’s most significant players in the years that followed Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
