Chelsea’s Juan Mata is seemingly closing in on a big money move to rivals Manchester United.
Having been crowned Chelsea’s Player of the Season in 11/12 and 12/13, the fans favourite’s departure is leaving some fans bemused.
New manager Jose Mourinho has used Juan Mata sparingly, believing his defensive contribution to be unsatisfactory.
Some Chelsea fans took to Twitter to voice their disappointment of Mata’s impending move.
god damn it…. why are we selling Mata to United…. granted he is surplus to requirements…don't sell to rivals #CFC

Just sold KDB so why would we sell Mata?

I wouldn't give Mata to United for any price. Especially after they dug their heels in with Rooney. Why would we bend over for them

We have got 568 players on loan, so why not loan Mata too instead of selling him and regretting it?

If we sell Mata to United I'll be pissed off why give them a life line where's the killer instinct Jose is always bagging on a about

I really can't understand why we are willing to sell mata… We should be playing him!

Beyond me why we'd let Mata join United unless Rooney was part of the deal

If Mourinho sells Mata and we don't win the league–then Mou's future at chelsea might be a short one

I don't get why we would sell Mata to a Premier league club. Mourinho is making a mistake if he does
