Arsenal considering snapping up £140,000-a-week star for free next summer

The London-based side Arsenal could make an audacious approach for league rivals Manchester United’s midfielder Juan Mata in the summer.

Unai Emery is a huge fan of the Spaniard and coached him when the north London giants boss was in charge of Valencia from 2008-2011.

And according to the Star on Sunday, Unai still highly rates Mata and will look to link up with the star again if he becomes available on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old Spaniard has refused to extend his stay at the Red Devils beyond this season and will become available on a free in the summer if Juan doesn’t sign a new deal.

It would be a perfect recruit for Arsenal especially if they lose Wales international Aaron Ramsey for nothing in the summer after contract negotiations between him and the club’s officials stalled.

Aaron Ramsey has been connected with moves to Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea and some of Europe’s elite clubs.

And while Juan’s future is in doubt, he would prefer to stay but wants guarantees about his first-team opportunities under Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho – or a new Red Devils manager.
