Manchester United Keen to Sign Chelsea’s Juan Mata, Says Report: Nightly Soccer Report

juan mata Manchester United Keen to Sign Chelseas Juan Mata, Says Report: Nightly Soccer Report

Manchester United have made an informal inquiry to Chelsea about the possibility of bringing Juan Mata to Old Trafford, two sources have confirmed to ESPN today.

The Red Devils have been linked with several midfielders this summer including Cesc Fabregas, Luka Modric, Marouane Fellaini and Claudio Marchisio, but all of those attempts to sign the footballers were unsuccessful. But a move for Juan Mata could be possible since Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is not keen on the midfielder, according to reports this summer.

Whether Mata could be used as part of a deal to bring Wayne Rooney to Chelsea is yet to be determined, but the move is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Do you think Juan Mata would be a good fit or not at Manchester United? Should Chelsea let him go, and will Willian be a better fit under Mourinho than Mata? Have your say in the comments section below.
