Manchester United Agree Fee With Chelsea For Mata


Manchester United have agreed a club-record £37 million fee with Chelsea for Juan Mata.
The Premier League champions confirmed on Friday evening that the deal is now subject to the midfielder completing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
The Spaniard was expected to arrive at Carrington by helicopter on Thursday in order to complete his medical but Chelsea's negotiations with Basel over Mohamed Salah held up United's plans.
Jose Mourinho revealed on Friday afternoon that Mata was close to a move to Old Trafford and claimed the midfielder was keen to leave Stamford Bridge.
"I asked him when the offer came: 'Are you really happy to go?' He said 'I'm really happy to go'," said the Chelsea manager.
"He is a fantastic player. In spite of not playing much for us, I still think he could be important for us. It's a good move for Juan, it's good for the Premier League and the offer is the right offer."
