CaughtOffside understands that Blues boss Mourinho is ready to sell Juan Mata after running out of patience with the Spanish international and will look to garner at least £25m from the 25 year old’s sale but will not consider offers from Premier League rivals.
Though Mata finished the last two campaigns as Chelsea’s Player of the Year Mourinho initially preferred to use Eden Hazard and Oscar as his creative midfield talents and when the former Valencia man has been used he has failed to hit the heights that saw him play a pivotal role in the West London club’s Champions League and Europa League successes.
PSG and Atletico Madrid are both keen on Mata but are said to prefer a loan move until the summer before completing a permanent switch, though this isn’t a deal that Chelsea are interested in and will hope that an interested party makes a firm offer this month
