Stoke City are interested in signing Juan Mata from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Express.

It has been reported that United manager Jose Mourinho will sell Mata this summer in order to make room for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

According to a recent report in The Telegraph, Everton are interested in signing the Spain international midfielder in the summer transfer window.

It has now been reported by The Daily Express that Premier League rivals Stoke City are keeping tabs on developments on Mata’s future.

Mata is one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League, and he would be a brilliant signing for Stoke.

The former Valencia star may not have been at his best at United, but he showed during his time at Chelsea that he is world class when on form and when played to his strength.
