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.
Sky Sources @juanmata10 to have medical at Manchester UTD this evening and deal is expected to be announced tomorrow #SSN— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) January 23, 2014
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.
