Juan Mata to Chelsea from Valencia subject to medical examination!

A little over 24 hours ago, AVB denied having any knowledge of an attempt by Chelsea to Sign Manuel Mata from Valencia. It seems that our manager can be very good at keeping things quiet, I wonder what else he may be hiding...

Anyway, it seems Mata will be our latest addition, providing that he passes the medical examinations he is expected to undergo in coming days.

Mata will wear the number 10 shirt, and the 23 year old left winger will be signing a 5 year contract that will see the club part with 55000 pounds per week. His transfer fee is expected to be around the 27 million euro mark.

On Sunday evening, the Valencia official website released this statement:

"Valencia Football Club has reached an agreement in principle with Chelsea FC for the transfer of the player Juan Manuel Mata. The agreement is subject to the relevant medical tests."

Mata will be a welcomed addition to the Chelsea squad and we hope to see our investment return positive results for many years to come by signing one of Europe's hottest properties.
