Manchester United ace, Juan Mata is considering his future at Old Trafford.
La Razon reports that Mata could be on the verge of a return to former club, Valencia.
Owner Peter Lim has welcomed the given a green light for the former Spanish international, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Lim is delighted to sign Mata because Valencia will not have to pay a transfer fee.
The 32-year-old Spaniard has struggled to hold down a place at United in recent years, making just 19 Premier League appearances last season.
He featured for Valencia between 2007 and 2011 before moving to Chelsea. But Mata may reject Lim’s advances due to the owner’s lack of popularity at the club.
Recall that Valencia reportedly gave their players IOU notes back in August 2020 because they could not afford to pay them. They are also at risk of being relegated from LaLiga for the first time since 1986.
