TRANSFER NEWS: £25m Ace Welcomes Premier League Move Speculation

By on July 18, 2011

Valencia winger Juan Mata has welcomed speculation linking him with a move this summer.

The talented Spaniard was the star at the recent Under 21 European Championship and was instrumental to Spain’s success. His performances haven’t gone unnoticed with speculation linking him with a £20million move to the Premier League with Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham all reported as potential suitors.

Despite the recent speculation, the 23-year old is used to reports linking him with a move away from Valencia. Mata said:

“It is true that teams have been linked with me but this is a good sign that I am playing well.

“Despite all the rumours, I have to stay calm and step away from all the speculation. I am well aware of the rumours but this is not the first summer I have had to deal with this so they do not worry me.

“My aim now is to make sure I am ready for the start of the new season and keep improving as a player. I want to win more trophies.”

    he says “i want to win trophies”. This has lately been translated to mean- “i don’t want to go to Arsenal”!

    Don’t think Chelsea would spend £25m on a player then sit him on the bench. Plus avb seems to have a lot of faith in the younger players. Lets make some signings and show our intent for comin season!!

    I know avb is assesing the squad but if we dont move quick enough then we wont get anyone we were too slow and lost out on snijder. we need to move quick to get aguero, mata/hazard, modric and does anyone agrre with me when i say rodwell to cover for essein then he can replace alex as center back would be a brilliant signing i think.

    I would love for Arsenal to sign this player…but with this much speculation, the deal is never going to happen.

    My humble advice to Wenger is to sell Fabregas to Barcelona,then Convince Nasri to stay by buying established players like Mata and Subotic.If possible add Jagielka then Arsenal will be stronger and able to contest for honours again in the Premier League

    My humble advice to Wenger is to sell Fabregas,Bendtner,denilson,and Chamakh then Convince Nasri to stay by buying established players like Mata and Subotic.If possible add Jagielka then Arsenal will be stronger and able to contest for honours again in the Premier League.
