Manchester United may accept £20M Mata bid


Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata could be sold by the club for as little as £20million.

Mata only came to Old Trafford from Chelsea in January for £37.1M on a four-year deal, but he has largely struggled for game time this season after the arrival of Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid.

And according to reports in Spain, United boss Louis van Gaal may be prepared to take a £17.1M hit on Mata.

Spanish pair Valencia and Atletico Madrid are keen on signing the playmaker, and the midfielder may be tempted by a fresh start in his homeland.

Atletico, managed by Diego Simeone, may be the favourites to sign Mata, but Valencia, after a cash injection by Peter Lim, now have the financial clout to bring in big names.
