Manchester United midfielder Juan Manuel Mata is interested in a move back to former club Valencia in the New Year.

The 30-year-old is reportedly keen to return to the Mestalla at the end of his current Manchester United deal.

This is according to the publication from France Football via talksport.

The Spanish international midfielder has less than a year left on his contract at Old Trafford.

His contractual situation with the Red Devils has thrown his future at the club in doubt and also prompted talks of a move away from the three-time European champions.

He had previously been linked with a transfer to Premier League rivals Arsenal in what could potentially be a reunion with new Gunners manager Unai Emery.

Mata featured under the guidance of the Spanish tactician while he was the Valencia boss.

Unai Emery and Juan Manuel Mata worked together at Valencia between 2008 and 2011 before the player left to join Chelsea in a multi-million pounds move.

The latest transfer links involve a return to his former hunting ground at the end of this season.

Mata wants to return to Valencia if he’s not offered a new contract at Manchester United.

He spent four hugely successful years at Valencia before his transfer to Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp shows interest in Club Brugge’s youngster

Published

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has developed an ‘unexpected’ interest in Club Brugge winger Arnaut Danmark Groeneveld and could be added to his team this month.

The 21-year-old Dutchman made his debut appearance for the Dutch national team last year and he’s been an important part of Brugge’s set up this campaign.

Danjuma has featured in 11 Eredivisie games this term and he has scored four goals with four assists.

His wonderful display at either side of the flank has caught the eyes of many European clubs, including AC Milan and Porto.

AC Milan reportedly offered £9m for his signature last month but the Eredivisie giants turned down the deal, making their intentions to retain his service beyond this season known to the San Siro outfits.

Despite Milan’s failure to lure the youngster to San Siro, Klopp has high hopes of completing his signature this month.

He will count on Virgil Van Dijk, Lovren and Wijnaldum— who are Danjuma’s national teammates — to convince the player on the importance of featuring for the Reds.

According to the Daily Mail, the Anfield outfits are set to offer £10m for the player before this weekend as they want him as Dominic Solanke’s replacement.

However, Danjuma’s move to Anfield looks very much unlikely due to intense competition among Liverpool attackers.

Danjuma may struggle for game-time because of the large pool of established strikers/wingers under Klopp’s guidance.

The Reds are doing great in the League as they comfortably occupy the first position in the League standings with 57 points, four above closest rivals Manchester City.
