Spanish side Sevilla are reportedly targeting Manchester United attacking midfielder Juan Mata for the coming transfer window.
Juan Mata has not been a regular for United since the arrival of Dutch manager Louis van Gaal. He joined the Red Devils for a fee around £37million from Chelsea in the start of 2014.
Reports have claimed that Sevilla have been keeping tabs on the Spaniard and are in intentions to make a bid in January.
The former Valencia midfielder is currently managing to get his name in the starting eleven, he also scored a goal in a 2 -1 win over Stoke City in the midweek.
Despite of breaking into the first team, La Liga side are still planning to make him as the first winter signing.
United are not ready to sell Mata in January but could sell him at the end of the season. LVG has already targeted Kevin Strootman of Roma who will be available in the summer. The Dutchman is rated at £35million. Strootman’s arrival will be a signal for Mata that he should look for a club.
The 26-year-old has scored 10 goals in 26 appearances for the Re Devils since his move in January. This season, he has started two games in Premier League, he will hopefully start his third game in a row this weekend.
