Barcelona Eye Ambitious €20m Swap Deal Involving Chelsea’s Juan Mata

Barcelona are lining-up an ambitious move that would see the Catalans pay €20m plus Alexis Sanchez for Chelsea’s Juan Mata this summer, according to reports.

With the summer transfer window set to re-open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Barcelona are lining-up a move for Chelsea’s Juan Mata.

Juan Mata

Some interesting news coming out of Spain today with El Economista reporting that Barcelona are lining-up an ambitious move that would see the Catalans pay €20m plus Alexis Sanchez for Chelsea’s Juan Mata this summer.

Mata has just enjoyed another excellent season for the Blues, scoring 20 goals and providing an astonishing 35 assists in his 64 appearances to help lift the Europa League and secure third place in the Premiership.

However, it seems the 25-year-old’s impressive form has alerted Barcelona and Spanish outlet El Economista are claiming the La Liga champions are prepared to pay €20m (£17m) and throw in winger Alexis Sanchez as a make-weight to land the creative attacker.

Sanchez endured a difficult campaign at the Nou Camp last season and has been tipped for a move this summer as Barcelona look to re-shape their squad following a disappointing Champions League exit to Bayern Munich.

The Chilean is certainly a talent and we haven’t seen the best of him in Spain but it’s difficult to see Chelsea being tempted by this deal if the La Liga champions do come knocking.

Mata has become central to their attacking play, is under contract and the Blues are under no pressure to sell one of their best players, so unless the player himself comes out and pushes for a move, I don’t see Chelsea contemplating this deal if Barca do come calling.

    Barcelona will sign Juan mata weda u guys like it or not because when dey come knocking the player will decide to join them, mata will replace xavi well in barcelona and will represent spain wella next year.. As a chelsea player he will hardly replace xavi.. Barca will sign him because he also wants to join and for David luiz i just hope he always joins barca because mourinho dont need him

      I think you’re out of your senses, if chelsea don’t agree to the deal, why don’t you come and help them persuade the players. If Mata goes to Barca, he’ll end up like fabregas. Why don’t you think that before, “IDIOT”

    May 30, 2013 at 5:52 am

    Guys pls listen 2 me all in d houz. If bacer wnts Juan Mata its ok yes Mata is our best player 4 nw no doubt but e can leave 2 Bacer only if dey can give us Cese wit £30m or sanchez wit £38m.we dnt nid Messi. Cese is a good player so we can hv a deal if dey make dis exchange. Fnks Blues for life

  22. frank

    May 30, 2013 at 5:53 am

    We need a stand in left fullback for, Ashley d great. Bethrand is not chelsea standerd…maybe a lower division not the epl certainly. The guy is not it when u talk of a footballer.

    Mata is playing the football of his life @ Chelsea, leaving would annihilate is career so there’s no way he’s moving to Barca to get benched like he is in the Spanish national team…

    paul yu are vry stupid. yu must be an arsenal fan.. yu gat no player like mata nd luiz. yu idiot stop poking yur nose.. barca get off chelsea except yu want to collect benayoun! lolz

  25. Jtwice

    May 30, 2013 at 7:00 am

    Both messi and their new god neymar can not offer 35 assist in epl barca is a fuul

  26. Eben Obey

    May 30, 2013 at 7:28 am

    Why are spanish teams barca & mardrid always trying to take the best from england, are they better in any way than England. Where is Robben, fabrigas, song? Spain killed their game. And now it is luiz, bale, suarez, mata,… My advise is all the EPL stars should stay. We need to control europe.

  27. Gentlegeno

    May 30, 2013 at 8:00 am

    Why dem no wan bargain 4 mikel nw?..have they 4goten dat Mikel was d 2nd best player wen messi was d 1st in junior world cup category!!? Mikel’s performance then can repeat itself nw. Barca can bring E70 mil. 4 him.

  28. Ochonogorrobinson

    May 30, 2013 at 8:23 am

    If barca tin dey want mata let dm give us messi and iniesta case closed

  29. Ochonogorrobinson

    May 30, 2013 at 8:27 am

    Paul u ar very very stupid 4 say such a tin, if u dnt belong 2 d club den shot up ur mouth i dnt want 2 hear ur voice again

  30. Jerome

    May 30, 2013 at 8:32 am

    And who told u barca that chelsea need money?…look let me tel u barca fans..chelsea wil neva sell mata cus £20m cant b compared 2 his ability on epl,his 20 goals per season,nd 36 asist in 64 matches..may i tel u dat indirectly barca is trying 2 insult mata including chelsea wit just ordinary £20m that the bilionaire can dash out witout a single thought..we can only let mata go on a swap deal involving that neymar plus isaac cuenca,then messi plus that £20m…the we can think about concidering..nd for luiz £40m or no deal..BLUEZ till death
