Juan Mata to Leave Adidas? Mata Trains in Blackout Adidas X Boots

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata laced up in black-out Adidas X 2015-2016 Football Boots in this week's Manchester United training sessions, which is usually an indication that a player leaves a brand. But is Mata set to leave Adidas?

In early July 2015, FC Bayern Munich striker Thomas Müller laced up in blackout Adidas X Boots even though he is the global face of the Adidas X 15.1 Boots; Then, however, the German international switched to the Solar Yellow Adidas X 15.1 Leather Boots in Bayern's first pre-season friendlies, and put an end on the rumors that he could leave the Three Stripes.

Juan Mata is wearing a modified version of the Adidas X 15.1 Boots without the trademark X-cage in the midfoot area. The new Juan Mata 2015-2016 Football Boots feature a stealth look without any visible brandings on the upper.

Apart from the X-cage in the midfoot area, the new black-out Juan Mata 2015-2016 Cleats are the same as the regular synthetic version of the Adidas X 15.1 featuring a techfit collar for flexible ankle support and a hybrid FG / AG outsole with a second-level of cleats.

However, it's really unlikely that Juan Mata will leave the Three Stripes as he is a global face of the Adidas X Boots and also helped Adidas to launch the new Adidas Manchester United 15-16 Home Kit.

We'll keep any eye on Juan Mata's Boots in the next weeks, and watch out for his cleats in today's Premier League Opener against Tottenham Hotspur.
