The move of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United is expected to be announced very soon and has so far received a lot of plaudits with many pundits hailing Man United for moving swiftly for the proven Premier League star.
However, his impending arrival at Old Trafford could pave the way for fans favourite to move away from the club.
Juan Mata at the moment is experiencing an extended run of games in the Jose Mourinho’s Starting XI but he is most likely the one to step away when the Chilean arrives considering the recent form of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.
The Spaniard has failed to give many glowing displays this season and is mainly the first choice on the right due to the failings of others at the club.
Reports are now linking the 29-year old with a move to Valencia.
The Spanish giants are believed to be willing to take the playmaker back to Spain in the summer in what could be a free transfer as his current contract runs out in less than 6 months.
There is a clause through which allows for a one-year extension but the Premier League club has so far not activated this option.
Juan Mata joined United from rivals Chelsea in January 2014 for £37.1 million. He is believed to be happy at United but will definitely consider his options.
Mata has made 130 league appearances for the Red Devils scoring 30 goals.
