In the news today:
News is gathering pace that Valencia ace, Juan Mata is a definitive target for Arsenal. The World Cup winner, 23, is highly rated and would demand a fee of around £23m, and Metro believe a bid could well be on the cards.
While scounts watched Thiago Alcantara in the summer’s U21 European Championships, Mata has caught the eye with a string of impressive performances.
Mata however is quoted in Metro suggesting: ‘I want to win a trophy with Valencia next season. I’ve not planned anything different as I’ve a contract until 2015,’ meaning it’s more likely Mata will stay in Spain.
Valencia however may have other ideas with an exaggerated offer for the pacey forward as they struggle with financial difficulties hanging over the in recent seasons.
