Juan Mata wanted by Juventus and Atletico Madrid

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata is considering a January loan exit as he looks to protect his place in the Spain squad for the 2014 World Cup, reports the Sunday Mirror.

Juventus and Atletico Madrid are the latest clubs to show an interest in the 25-year-old playmaker, who continues to be used sparingly by the Blues this season.

Jose Mourinho has made no secret of the fact that he favours Oscar in the No.10 role at Stamford Bridge, urging Mata to make an improvement on the defensive side of his game.

The former Valencia star wants to hold talks with Mourinho and Chelsea's technical director Michael Emenalo, to discover if he features in the club's long-term plans.

Mata's desire is to remain in west London, but is increasingly concerned that his lack of playing time this season might cost him his inclusion in Vicente del Bosque's party going to Brazil next summer.

The Spaniard was also an unused substitute in Chelsea's 3-0 victory over West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.
