Arsenal have been linked with a sensational swoop for Spanish international Juan
Mata after his father and agent Juan Mata Snr. was spotted in the director’s box of
the Emirates as the gunners made sure of safe passage to the group stages of this
year’s UEFA champions league with a comfortable 2-0 win over Turkish side Fenerbahce.
Chelsea star Mata has made only one start this season under Jose
Mourinho and was left on the bench throughout the stalemate with Man Utd on Monday
at Old Trafford. It’s been reported that he’s currently considering his future with
the Blues and this appearance at the Emirates by his agent could add further fuel to
speculations surrounding the 25 year old.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hasn’t hidden his admiration for the leftfooted playmaker
but is wondering if Chelsea would love to sell to another top premier league side.
Mata has also been linked to Arsenal’s neighbours Tottenham and a return home with Athletico Madrid
showing the feintest of interest.
