Juan Mata announcement not expected until Friday

Scott Heavey

While the medical is expected to be done shortly, no announcement is now expected until tomorrow

Juan Mata is almost certainly leaving Chelsea now, but the latest from Sky Sports is indicating that we might well be waiting until tomorrow before getting confirmation from either club.

There seems to be little reason to anticipate any issues with the medical, as Mata has appeared healthy enough in training and on Chelsea's bench. I'd also doubt any sort of ridiculous personal demands will prove to be a major holdup in this deal, as Mata seems the reasonable sort and United are absolutely desperate for some good news.

Regardless, it now sounds as if we'll have to wait a bit longer for the official announcement that Mata no longer plays for Chelsea.
