Juan Mata to Atletico Madrid in January transfer?

What? Manchester United to let Juan Mata leave in the January transfer window? Well, we certainly don’t think so but according to the Daily Mail they report that he could be off to his homeland of Spain this coming January.

According to their report, Atletico Madrid are confident of prising Juan Mata away from Manchester United in the January transfer window.

The Spanish international has scored eight times in 19 matches for Manchester United since joining from Chelsea back in January.

However, the attacker was recently dropped to accommodate Radamel Falcao with Wayne Rooney being in the number ten role and it is understood that United boss Louis van Gaal is open to selling the 26-year-old.

Atletico will make a move in January, but face competition from Mata’s former club Valencia.

Juan Mata returned to the Manchester United XI during Sunday’s 2-1 victory against Everton.
