Manchester United's Juan Mata to give portion of salary to charity

Man Utd Player Ratings v Sampdoria: Who impressed for the Red Devils in Dublin?

Mata said he would donate the money to Common Goal, a fund run by the charity streetfootballworld that supports football charities around the world.

Mata explained how he has made a decision to give back to the less fortunate in hopes they can have a similar chance that he had, and promised to donate one per cent of his salary toward the Common Goal fund.

"What we're trying to do is define a shared social agenda for football", explains Mata. By making the pledge, we can form a lasting connection between football as a business and ootball as a tool for social change.

As Common Goal's first member, Mata is now looking to assemble a "starting XI" of like-minded players who make the one per cent pledge to lead the movement forward. What I want and what everyone wants is to get back home and have a little bit of a rest'.

Neymar, the Brazilian who moved from Barcelona to Paris St Germain this week, has been reported as earning more than 40 million pounds annually.

It's like we live in a bubble.

"I thought about everything football had given me".

"The barometer we use for measuring our salaries is comparing them to those of our team-mates and what other players are earning elsewhere".
