Mata’s arrival will apparently lead the Old Trafford side to use Japanese international Shinji Kagwawa as bait in the pursuit of Westfalenstadion duo Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan.
Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp is known to still be a big admirer of former charge Kagawa, who has struggled to make an impact since moving to the Premier League 18 months ago.
Klopp has seen striker Robert Lewandowski sign a deal with domestic rivals Bayern Munich and the Pole will join former team-mate Mario Gotze at the Allianz Arena and there must be a fear that further departures are likely, not least as Dortmund are way off the Bundesliga title pace.
Attacking midfielder Reus would offer Moyes some added forward momentum in the final third and Gundogan would offer the Scot a good box to box engine to further freshen up the Man United side.
