Chelsea have accepted a £37.5million offer from Manchester United for Juan Mata, and will release him so that he can join the Premier League champions, according to the Telegraph.

The Spaniard’s future has been the subject of much doubt in the past few days, ever since United’s rumoured interest was reported.

However now the Telegraph have not only confirmed rumours that United have made a club-record bid of £37.5million for the Spaniard, but that Chelsea have subsequently accepted the offer.

The report states that Mata will undergo a medical on Thursday before completing his move and doubling his £70,000-a-week salary.

It is thought that Jose Mourinho himself has sanctioned the sale of Mata, and Chelsea are already moving to replace the 25-year-old before the end of the winter transfer window.

United fans will no doubt breathe a sigh of relief as they have become accustomed to missing out on high-profile targets in recent times.
