United Move For Mata

According to the BBC, Manchester United have had a bid, believed to be in the region of ?37mil ($61mil), accepted by Chelsea for Spanish playmaker Juan Mata.

Mata has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after struggling to hold down a regular starting place under Jose Mourinho.?The Spain international, who has won 32 caps, said goodbye to team-mates and staff at Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old will have a medical on Thursday before completing a move to the Premier League champions.?Mata is expected to sign a four-and-a-half year deal at Old Trafford.

Should the deal go through, it would break United's previous record transfer - the ?30.75m they paid Spurs for?Dimitar Berbatov in September 2008.
