Juan Mata offered to Juventus as part of Paul Pogba transfer

Published 12 Comments

Manchester United have offered Spaniard Juan Mata to Juventus in a bid to sign France international Paul Pogba. 

This has been reported by Steve Bates of the Sunday People, who claims that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is ready to sacrifice Mata to secure the signing of Pogba. 

Pogba, 23, departed Old Trafford on a free transfer back in 2012, but it now appears that he could be set to return to the club in a world-record transfer.

It has been widely documented that Pogba has been rated at a mega fee of £100 million, but it appears that United are hoping to secure a player plus cash fee to wrap up the deal. 

It's uncertain, however, as to whether Mata would be interested in a move to Italy. The 28-year-old faces being sold by Mourinho for the second time after the revered manager offloaded him to United while he was in charge of Chelsea.

Jose changes 

Unfortunately for Mata, he just isn't a Mourinho-type player and may well have to move on once again. 


Mata played a prominent role under Louis van Gaal in Manchester last season, but his game hasn't really changed over the course of the last couple of years. 

United fans have clearly taken to Mata, but that may not be enough to save him from Mourinho's axe. 

Do you expect Mata to be involved in the deal to sign Pogba? Have your say below!
