We are waking up to some good transfer speculation this morning for a change! We had gotten so used to reading up Fabregas and Nasri every morning. The Mirror is reporting that Juan Mata’s representatives are in London discussing a potential deal to take the Spanish star from Valencia to Arsenal.
We may be losing Fabregas to Barcelona but I feel the blow could be slightly softened by the arrival of Mata especially if it is true that we will only be signing him for £15million. Liverpool must be feeling really silly now as they spent £20million on Downing and we could get Mata for £5million less and there is no doubt that Mata is a better player than Downing.
The beauty with Mata is that he can play on either flanks and even behind the main striker, thus making him much more versatile than Fabregas.
Hopefully this deal can be sealed soon if the reports in the Mirror are accurate.
