Jose Mourinho will sell this Man United star for £20m – report

Juan Mata will be sold by Manchester United this summer, according to reports

Jose Mourinho is prepared to sell Juan Mata for £20m to make room for Paul Pogba at Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is claiming that the United manager is ready to offload the playmaker this summer as he chases a big-money deal to bring Pogba to Old Trafford from Juventus.

Mourinho was the man who opted to sell Mata to United from Chelsea back in January 2014 after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

The same report goes on to say that Mata was keen to stay and prove himself under Mourinho for a second time – but that the Portuguese coach is now preparing to sell the Spaniard once again.

The story claims that Premier League side Everton are interested in signing Mata this summer as new manager Ronald Koeman looks to bolster his squad at Goodison Park.
