Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool Transfer Target Juan Mata Happy At Valencia
The player who won the World Cup and the U21 World Cup with the Spanish International team told Marca,
“I have never said I want to leave. From here to August 31, if there are any offers then the first to know about it will be the club. I never said I wasn’t happy here.
“There’s no point speaking about suppositions. I like to talk about realities. I am very relaxed because if there is anything, the club will assess it.”
Mata, one time a Barcelona target, claims he is used to dealing with the frequent transfer talk.
“For me, isolating myself is no problem. I already went through it at the World Cup and at the European Under 21 Championship.
“I know the boss said something (about the possibility of me leaving), but I am not aware of any offer having arrived.”
Mata’s comments come less than a day after Valencia coach, Unai Emery, had warned that the Spain forward might leave, should the club receive a big-money offer from someone. The coach had said, “Valencia has to be prepared for a footballer having to leave, either because is he is not wanted or because some big club wants to sign him. We want Mata to stay and Mata has also expressed his wish to remain at Valencia, but we know that if a big-money offer comes in from any club and it’s good for both the player and the club, it could lead to his exit.”
