Serie A giants plot escape route for Manchester United ace

Mourinho does not regret letting Juan Mata leave Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern look like they are enjoying the international break.

Not because they are looking forward to watching England (nobody looks forward to that!) but because it gives Louis van Gaal extra time with his squad.

The Red Devils’ squad has looked almost shell-shocked thus far this season with all the comings and goings.

But according to The Mirror, Italian giants Juventus are going to try and disrupt any momentum gained by bidding for Juan Mata.

The Old Lady are lining up a bid for the Spanish international attacking midfielder to see if van Gaal deems the former Chelsea man surplus to requirements.

Mata could struggle to hold onto a first team place at United this season after the Dutch manager added Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao to his ranks.

They already had a wealth of attacking options with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Adnan Januzaj also fighting for places.

This means that the Italian side’s bid could push van Gaal into making a decision, especially as he has eyes on Bianconeri pair Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
