Manchester United could lose midfielder Juan Mata to La Liga giants Valencia for a cut price £20m, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Spaniard has found his chances at Old Trafford dwindling under Louis van Gaal, with Angel Di Maria and Ashley Young being preferred on in the advanced roles. This is despite the 26-year-old playing well when given the chance, notably in their last game against Tottenham on Sunday.
The Red Devils signed him from Chelsea for £37 million less than 18 months ago, but he could now be let go for just £20 million as the club hierarchy look to cut their losses on a player that Louis van Gaal doesn’t seem interested in. Valencia owner Peter Lim was in Manchester last week, and they may now try to tempt the playmaker back to the club he was at before he came to the Premier League.
