Manchester United bid £35m for Chelsea's Juan Mata [BBC]


The Juan Mata transfer to Manchester United saga is moving really fast...

BBC are reporting that Manchester United have submitted an official bid to Chelsea.

Manchester United have made a bid in the region of £35m for Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata. 

Mata, 25, has been linked with a move from Stamford Bridge having struggled to hold down a regular starting place under Jose Mourinho. 

United deny making an official offer, but an initial bid has been tabled through intermediaries acting on behalf of the Premier League champions. 

Mata did not train with Chelsea's first team on Wednesday. 

On Tuesday, Chelsea insisted that Mata, who has been voted the club's player of the year two seasons in a row, was not for sale. 

But the Spaniard has been substituted in nine of his 13 Premier League appearances for the Blues this season, prompting speculation other clubs could bid for him in the January transfer window. 

The initial offer is likely to be rejected with Chelsea holding out for as much money as possible with more than a week to go until the transfer window closes. 

But it is known that United are prepared to pay a premium for top players on David Moyes's list of targets if it means securing them now rather than waiting until the summer.
