According to The Express, Juventus are confident of landing Juan Mata and this deal will NOT include Arturo Vidal going the other way as part of a recently reported player exchange.
It has become clear that the Spaniard is low down in United’a attacking pecking order despite Louis van Gaal having tried and tested numerous systems.
It seems the arrival of Radamel Falcao has led to the club captain, Wayne Rooney, falling back into Mata’s favoured number 10 role with the Colombian partnering Robin van Persie up front.
This has of course left no room for the Spanish international with punters still firmly believing he has a lot more to offer United and that his invaluable experience of the Premier League could be exactly what they need during this tough transnational period.
With his future at Old Trafford hanging in the balance, Juve will hope to capitalise on his current uncertain situation and see it as a great opportunity with van Gaal looking to financially pave the way to bring in defensive reinforcements.
Mata’s former club Valencia are also believed to be in the running to compete for his signature after voicing their intent to re-sign their former hero.
Manchester United fans. Do you think Juan Mata should leave the club or is it appalling that Louis van Gaal has allowed his future to become this uncertain? Let us know your thoughts below.
