Chelsea to sign Spanish winger

Updated: August 21, 2011

Valencia winger Juan Mata will soon be on his way to Chelsea, as Spanish media claim a deal worth between £27 and £30 million euros is almost completed.

“Mata will play for Chelsea,” said the As newspaper on its Internet edition. It went on to claim the Blues will pay £30 million.

“Mata’s departure is imminent,” added Marca. “The club will accept an offer of between £27 and £28 million which will allow him to play in the Premier League.”

Mata has long been tipped to leave Valencia, but Arsenal and Tottenham were thought to be his main pursuers.
