Spanish giants eye Old Trafford star.
Atletico Madrid have reportedly made Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata their top transfer target for January, according to the Daily Star.
The Spanish champions are keen to strengthen in midfield, particularly as they face some doubt over the future of £48m-rated starlet Koke, who is a top target for Chelsea and Manchester City.
Mata could make an excellent signing for Diego Simeone’s side, with recent reports suggesting he could leave Old Trafford for just £20m this winter.
The 26-year-old only moved to United from Chelsea last year, but has struggled to find his best form at the club.
