Juan Mata happy at Chelsea despite transfer rumours

Published Add your comment

Juan Mata says he is happy at Chelsea - despite reports linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window.

The Spaniard, who in his two seasons at Chelsea has twice been voted the club's player of the year, was reportedly offered to Manchester United as part of an offer for Wayne Rooney - something Chelsea denied in a statement.

Mata was also subject to reported interest from Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and PSG, but remains with the Blues after the close of the transfer window earlier this week.

"I think it's normal in every transfer window that there are lots of rumours but I'm happy here," he told Chelsea TV.

"It's been a very, very good two seasons for me here, maybe the best of my career, and what I want this season is the same.

"I'm looking forward to achieving as many trophies as we did the last two seasons and hopefully this is going to be a good season for us again."

Mata has found game time hard to come by under new boss Jose Mourinho, and has made just one substitute appearance in the Premier League this season.

The Chelsea midfielder was also dropped from Spain's squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Finland and their friendly against Chile.
