Barcelona considering summer swoop for £140,000 a-week Man Utd star

June 24, 2018

Barcelona are considering to make a summer swoop for Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata, according to reports.

The La Liga giants are still on the hunt for offensive reinforcements after missing out on Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann and losing one of their key players Andres Iniesta last season.

French superstar was heavily linked with a €100m move to Barcelona, however, revealed last week that he has instead chosen to remain at Wanda Metropolitano and has signed a new deal.

Meanwhile, the Spanish giants are also keeping tabs for a replacement for club talisman Andres Iniesta, who left Barcelona this summer.

And, according to Bleacher Report, Barcelona are lining up a move for Man Utd playmaker Juan Mata who has been frustrated with his playing time at Old Trafford.

The reports have come somewhat as a surprise, however, a move back to La Liga for Mata would not be a total shock.

Former Chelsea star is no longer a guaranteed starter under Jose Mourinho, however, has never kicked up a fuss about his role in the Red Devils team and is well loved by fans.
