Football News

Juan Mata. The name on every Chelsea fans lips last season. But that man, is nowhere to be found now. The Spaniard is highly out of favour and has struggled to impress Jose Mourinho this season.

The Portuguese has stated of his desire to improve his squad next month and accepts that one or two of his key players may have to depart Stamford Bridge in the process and that might include Mata.

It would be terrible for Chelsea fans to see their beloved player depart, but it would do Mata the world of good leaving Stamford Bridge instead of bench warming.

Mata is keen to enhance his chances of getting a starting spot in the World Cup team ahead of next summer's tournament and may well push a move abroad in order to do so.
