It would have been entirely implausible last season, but the World Cup winner may not have a future in the Mourinho regime.
Arsenal fans may be tired of their club failing to bring in a marquee signing, but they cannot fault manager Arsene Wenger’s ambition.
The Mirror report that the Gunners are all set to offer Juan Mata a way out of Stamford Bridge.
The Spanish creator has been Chelsea’s player of the season in both of his full season’s with the club, and was unlucky to lose out to Gareth Bale in last year’s PFA Player of the Season award. His 12 goals and 17 assists in 35 Premier League matches last year exemplify his incredible influence in everything the Europa League winners do.
Incredibly, returning boss Jose Mourinho seems to be pushing him out of the side. Early rumours of disinterest from the manager seem to not be as unfounded as first thought after Mata sat out Chelsea’s first game of the season against Hull City and then only played 65 minutes of their match against Aston Villa.
Now, with the imminent arrival of Brazilian playmaker Willian, Mata will find his playing time even further limited.
Believing that he would prefer to stay in London and with Champions League qualification all but assured, Arsenal boss Wenger is preparing a shock move for Mata
The move would certainly be an enormous statement of intent from the North Londoners. Would Chelsea sell to such close league rivals? Can Arsenal afford the transfer fee and the wage demands anticipated to be in excess of £70,000 per week? With just one week remaining of this transfer window, soon fans will have their answer.
