Chelsea's training session. Where is Juan Mata? pic.twitter.com/mO6i7V5b3b— The Special One (@SultanKayed) January 22, 2014
It’s a cliché saying but a picture tells a thousand words and several have emerged today of Chelsea’s training session with Manchester United target Juan Mata nowhere to be seen.
It could be the case that he’s carrying a little knock, was especially late out for the session (queue a fine from Jose), simply wasn't caught on camera, or the conclusion that everyone seems to be jumping to; it’s a sign that he’s edging closer to a Manchester United transfer.
Several reports have strongly suggested that a £35-40 million move for the Spanish midfielder is on the cards which would be the marquee signing that Manchester United fans have been calling for.
Take a look at the snaps and draw your own conclusions.
