Incoming Allianz Arena boss keen on Stamford Bridge flair player.
Pep Guardiola is reportedly keen on luring Spanish international Juan Mata to Bayern Munich this summer. The former Barcelona manager has earmarked a move for the Chelsea attacker and identified the flair player as an addition he’d like to add to his Allianz Arena squad.
The incoming boss, who is set to take over from current boss Jupp Heyneckes at the end of the season, has already started to draw up plans for possible ins and outs in his Bayern Munich squad and is keen on making advances for 24 year old Mata, who has been a big success since his move to Stamford Bridge in August 2011.

The former Valencia man was pivotal in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph and produced 20 assists in all competitions and has been similarly productive in the current campaign and has formed a great partnership with new signing Eden Hazard.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is sure to fight off advances for a player the club spent £23.5m to sign but if Mata opts to push for a move to the Bavarian club then the West London side will be sure to demand far in excess of the amount they paid for the pint sized midfielder’s services.
