Arsenal Linked With Sensational Swoop For Chelsea’s Juan Mata

By on July 20, 2013

According to reports today, Arsenal are interested in signing Chelsea attacker Juan Mata this summer and have asked to be kept informed of any developments over his availability.

The Spaniard’s future has surprisingly come under question following the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge and reports last week suggested Chelsea had tried to offer Mata as a make-weight in their bid to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.

The Blues dismissed this are pure speculation and insisted they had offered a straight cash bid but the rumours of Mata possibly being out-of-favour under Mourinho refuse to go away.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is interested in signing the Spanish international this summer and has asked to be kept informed of any developments over his future. Should it become clear the 25-year-old is available, then the newspaper claims Wenger will launch an audacious bid to try and lure him to the Emirates.

I’d usually dismiss this kind of report immediately but I think it’s clear we’re trying to sign at least one big name this summer and let’s not forget we were extremely close to signing Mata back in 2011, so Wenger is obviously a fan.

Mata was arguably Chelsea’s best player last season, scoring 11 goals and providing 13 assists, so it’s mid-boggling to think that Mourinho doesn’t see him as an important first team player.

Whether there is any substance in the rumours suggesting Chelsea might be prepared to cash in on Mata remains to be seen, but I certainly hope we’ll be at the front of the queue if they do, for some reason, decide to sell.

    This is just an ordinary speculation, it can’t just be. Mata was nominated as the best player last season so i see a big reason why mourinho wants to sell him out. Like i said it’s just an ordinary speculation.

    Most sensible Arsenal fans realise that this is pure BS by first Spanish and now British press. Chelsea have confirmed he will not leave nor do they need to sell him. Mourihno has confirmed he will not be sold. Mata has confirmed he does not want to leave. Mata voted Chelsea’s best player in both seasons since his arrival. His chances of winning trophies are better at Chelsea. Chelsea do not sell there best players unlike Arsenal, do I need to say any more.

    I like this Mata to Arsenal just a clear story, saying sir Alex is back as manu player. Only a blind man will consider this cos jose would be seen as a madman if he agree to let go of player who delivered two wining passes in the CL final and the europa final and voted as club best player in his two season at chelsea. More to that he was refered to as over use Mata after playing 68 out of the 70 games with 18 goals and 23 assist he has more assist than any other player in the EPL. Who is Wenger deciving? Who wiLl want to this kind of player? Only if not Wenger
