Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will listen to offers for Juan Mata this summer, according to reports.
The Sunday Express reports that the recently appointed Red Devils chief is ready to listen to serious bids for the Spanish international, who was only brought to the club by former boss David Moyes in the January transfer window.
Spanish newspaper AS claimed on Saturday that Barcelona are considering a move for the former Valencia and Chelsea playmaker, with £40million the speculated price tag.
Van Gaal looks set to shake-up the Manchester United side this summer, and with the Dutchman favouring one playmaker behind a striker, Mata could be the man sacrificed at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney is the man likely to play behind Robin van Persie, and the new boss could look to reinvest funds from the sale of Mata in wingers who can add pace to the Red Devils.
Marco Reus and Yevhen Konoplyanka are two men on the Manchester United radar, the Express reports, and it remains to be seen if the former Premier League champions will try and conclude some business before the start of the World Cup.
As for Barcelona, they are set for change after a season that saw them fail to win the La Liga title or reach the Champions League final, falling short to Atletico Madrid in both.
Luis Enrique has taken the helm for the Catalan giants, and the arrival of Mata would be a major boost at the Nou Camp if they were able to complete the signing.
