Mata has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, having fallen out of favour under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

BBC sports editor David Bond has now claimed that an offer has finally been made for the Spaniard, believed to be in the region of £35m, which was processed through intermediaries acting on behalf of Manchester United.

The news arrives after widespread reports stated that United were already negotiating with Chelsea, and that a deal for the 25-year-old could well go through before the weekend.

The Spaniard was said to be absent from training today at Chelsea’s Cobham headquarters, with the Daily Telegraph claiming that Mata is already preparing himself for a medical at Old Trafford.

  1. I think jose mourinho is sick for selling mata to man united, dnt he know we are both rivals? y cant he sell him to another league!! this is so annoying.. tcheewww

  2. mourinho is a stupid man!

  3. Mourinho is a smart man. I reckon he did it because he will need a return from United. Very calculative. Rooney is on the radar so he might as well throw in Mata into the mix. The problem will only arise if United do eventually make it into the CL if they do.
