Father (and agent) of Chelsea’s Juan Mata in the director’s box at the Emirates tonight
Well this is pretty explosive news coming out of Arsenal tonight.
Chelsea Player of the Season for two years running Juan Mata, could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.
Reputable French journalist Julien Laurens confirmed that Juan Mata Senior is at the Arsenal game tonight, sitting in the director’s box.
Juan Mata’s father is also his agent and despite Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claiming that his Spanish star is going nowhere last night, it seems the player may have other thoughts on his mind.
A move to rival London side Arsenal would be pretty outrageous but having yet to start for Chelsea this season, Mata could be looking for a way out.
Or will Juan Mata simply join the long list of failed Arsenal transfer targets?
UPDATE: Julien Laurens deleted his tweet 15 minutes later. However, 5Live then confirmed that Juan Mata Senior is in fact at the Emirates.
