Chelsea accept Manchester United bid for Juan Mata, according to report

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Sad panda is sad

The Telegraph are now reporting that a bid for Juan Mata has been accepted, and that the Spanish international is on his way to Manchester UnitedHere's what they had to say:

Chelsea have accepted a £37million bid for Juan Mata and immediately released the Spanish international to join Manchester United to complete the most dramatic deal of the transfer window. Mata will undergo a medical on Thursday at United before completing the move that will see him more than double his £70,000-a-week Chelsea salary at Old Trafford.

This obviously isn't confirmation from either club, but it's a sad day if true. Mata will be missed, as the first two seasons of his two and a half years with the club were absolutely fabulous. He tapered off after the return of Jose Mourinho, but that doesn't alter the fact that he'll always have a place in the hearts of Chelsea's fans. Mata will forever be a part of the squad that finally brought the European Cup to London, and it's hard to picture him doing anything during his career that could make Chelsea fans sour on him after that.
