Arsenal Invites Mata’s Agent To Emirates As Wenger Confirms Interest In Chelsea Midfielder

Juan+MataAccording to reports last night, Chelsea star Juan Mata’s father and agent was in attendance at Arsenal’s game yesterday. If reports are to be believed, the Chelsea star’s agent and father is already discussing with Arsenal in regards to a potential transfer to the gunners from Chelsea where he has fallen out of favour.

To even make it even more interesting, Wenger has confirmed that he likes the player even after 3 years of failing to sign the player. Mata was close to joining Arsenal from Valencia couple of years ago in fact a deal was reportedly agreed before Chelsea hijacked the deal and signed the Spanish.

Reporter: Any interest in Juan Mata?

Wenger: I’ve heard, like you, that Juan Mata could be on the market. I don’t know.

Reporter: He’s obviously a player that you have liked a couple of years ago, isn’t he?

Wenger: Well, yes. (Cheeky look). I like him.

Reporter: Was his father invited as a guest of Arsenal tonight?

Wenger: I don’t know. (Cheeky smile). Maybe. (Cheeky smile continues).

Just yesterday respected reported Guillem Balague told the world via Twitter that Mata feels unwanted at Chelsea and may consider moving away from the club before the current transfer window closes even though Chelsea have stated they do not want to sell the site.

  1. All this is a pointer that Arsenal is not a serious club and have been taking their fans as fools.If actually you are interested in a player why invite his agent or father as a guest when you are yet to conclude or start negotiations when you know you can end up infuriating his club.AW has always maintained he does his business discreetly,then why talk about this one.He is not interested.He is only playing on your intelligence.He is not gonna buy anybody.

  2. wenger is just a liar,he is use to buying players of less than 1m so he can afford the likes juan,di maria etc.so dont expect more good players apart dead stocks for free.

  3. We linked 2 signing almost every one this transfer window, personally I don’t see any of the deals going through!
