Juan Mata's transfer to Manchester United is in place, according to The Telegraph.
The paper report that Chelsea have accepted a £37 million bid, with a medical scheduled for Thursday (tomorrow).
The Spanish international has been a bit-part player at Chelsea this season, and has been told by Jose Mourinho he is free to join Manchester United.
Personal terms are said to have already been agreed and a transfer could even be announced within 24 hours given the rapid rate of developments.
United do not have an FA Cup game at the weekend so his debut, should the move become official, could be against Cardiff City at Old Trafford in the Premier League next week.
