French champions Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up a move for Chelsea star Juan Mata, according to the Telegraph.
Chelsea remain unlikely to sell the 25-year-old Spanish international but could be tempted by an offer from PSG, who are planning a bid in the January transfer window as they look to add more quality to their squad.
The French outfit are one of the world's richest clubs, having been backed by the Qatari Investment group, and have splashed a record €364million in the short time period of 2011-13 in order to make their side strong enough to challenge on all fronts.
Coincidently Mata, who was the player of the season for Chelsea last campaign, is not a regular in the starting XI under Jose Mourinho this season. The Spaniard was signed from Valencia for £23.5million in 2001 and proved to be a instant impact, becoming the key player for the Blues in the 2011-12 Season.
According to reports PSG are looking to replace Ezequiel Lavezzi and Mata would be the perfect fit as he looks to secure his place in Spain's squad for the World Cup.
It is thought that the 25-year-old attracted interest from PSG at the end of the summer window but Chelsea rebuffed the approach.
However, the free-spending French club are planning to return with another offer, having targeted Mata as one of two signings they are planning for January.
