Manchester United are willing to let their former record breaking star Juan Mata depart the club in January for only £20 million, as reported by the Daily Star.
This represents a huge comedown for the Spain international, who made a stunning move to Man Utd from Chelsea only a year ago, agreeing terms for a switch in exchange for £37.1 million, which represented a record outlay for the Manchester club at the time.
Spanish media are now suggesting that the ex-Chelsea man has failed to make an impact since Louis van Gaal’s arrival, and therefore the former Netherlands coach is willing to let him leave.
Some of the clubs thought to be interested in him include Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Juventus, along with a host of other top European clubs.
Mata would reportedly favour a move back to Spain, and it is thought that Atletico would be an ideal fit for that, with the club bolstered by recent successes.
