Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata could complete a move to Spanish giants Barcelona this summer. 

This has been reported by Mundo Deportivo, who claim that the former Chelsea man looks set to leave Old Trafford behind after the appointment of Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils' new manager. 

Mourinho, of course, was the man to sanction Mata's move to United from Stamford Bridge back in January of 2014.

Mata failed to make an impact under Mourinho's guidance in west London and was subsequently moved on. 

Now, then, with the pair set to be reunited in Manchester, it appears that Mourinho could sell Mata for the second time. 

Mata on the move?

Indeed, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that a move to Barcelona could be on the cards for Mata, this summer looks set to be an interesting one for all involved. 

If the report is to be believed, the world-class trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar could soon have to battle it out with Mata for a place in the side. 

Since leaving Chelsea and Mourinho behind, Mata has had a topsy-turvy spell in Manchester. He's certainly played a prominent role at the club - often out on the right-hand side of midfield - but he's failed to produce his best football on a consistent basis. 

His FA Cup final goal against Crystal Palace will live long in the memory, but that may not be enough to save him from the axe this summer. 

Change could be imminent at Old Trafford and Mata may well have to find a new home.
