According to a report by the Express, who cite Turkish outlet, Fanatik, Juan Mata could be involved in a swap deal away from Manchester United in the summer.

Mata has done terrifically for the Red Devils, scoring six goals and grabbing three assists in 22 appearances, despite being one of the favourites to leave the club last year because of memories at Stamford Bridge with manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho sold Mata to United two years ago when the Portuguese was still manager of Chelsea and it was likely that the same was going to happen again. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the Spaniard, as Mourinho kept hold of him this season.

The Spanish attacker has turned out to be a key player this season at Old Trafford.

However, it looks like he could be leaving Manchester in the summer in a deal with Brazilian midfielder Anderson Talisca, who has impressed whilst on loan from Benfica. The Brazilian has a £21 million release clause in his current deal in Portugal.
