Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a whopping €48million offer for Chelsea's Juan Mata in the January transfer window, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The Spaniard, who has been involved in the transfer rumour-mill consistently since the summer, has had his struggles at Stamford Bridge well documented over the last few months and now it seems the French champions are determined take advantage of his situation.

It is thought that the massive fee will be enough for Laurent Blanc to tempt the Blues into a sale, even though Jose Mourinho has repeatedly stated that the playmaker has a future at Chelsea.

Mata has found himself on the bench more often than not this year and may well fancy his chances of glory with PSG, particularly given the fact that it's a World Cup year and competition for spaces in the Spain team is as fierce as ever.

With Mourinho believed to be planning a large-scale overhaul of his squad, Mata may not be the only one to be tipped to leave, but the suggested fee will surely be the most they can look to receive for one player.
