Juan Mata has settled into life in Manchester seamlessly since his big money switch from Chelsea in January - thanks to a helping hand from Manchester City rival David Silva.

Mata sealed his £37 million move from Stamford Bridge before the close of the January transfer window, and bagged his first assist for his new club in their 2-1 defeat against Stoke last weekend.

It's not just on the pitch at Old Trafford that Mata has already found his feet however - it seems he's already settling into the Manchester social scene as well.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Spanish star has been spotted at a variety of high-end restaurants and bars.

The paper also reports that the Manchester United man was also spotted dining with Manchester City rival and countryman David Silva.

Silva joined Manchester City back in 2010 so is well placed to show Mata some of the hottest spots around the city.

He may also be able to help him out with a house too; Mata has been living in the Lowry Hotel since his move to Manchester United and is on the lookout for a permanent abode.

Awkwardly, he's yet to be spotted in Manchester United team-mate Rio Ferdinand's restaurant Rosso...something wrong with the food Juan?
