Mata rumours rumble on

Last Updated: Sun, 24 Nov 2013 09:18

Juventus and Atletico Madrid are the latest clubs to be linked with a move for Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata.

The Spanish ace has struggled to play regular football since the return of Jose Mourinho with the Chelsea boss often preferring to play Brazilian star Oscar as his number 10.

Mourinho was full of praise for Oscar after he scored in Saturday's 3-0 win at West Ham and Mata is genuinely concerned over his chances of playing for Spain in the World Cup next summer.

Mata has improved the defensive side of his game dramatically, much to the delight of Mourinho, but he is still not playing as much as he would like and could seek a move in January.

Paris Saint Germain have been heavily linked but the player now has options in Italy and Spain following interest from Atletico and Juve.
