David Moyes is ready to rescue Manchester United’s season, with a £37m move for out of favour Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

United’s loss to Chelsea on Sunday was United’s 7th of the season and leaves the team, 6 points off 4th place Liverpool and an embarrassing 14 points off league leaders Arsenal.

Moyes had said that conducting business in January was hard but it appears following the latest defeat he is ready to step in and save United’s season with a move for Mata.

As we reported last week, United had made a £20m enquiry about Mata after his father and agent was given no assurances in regards to playing time but Moyes will up United’s offer to a whopping £37m, breaking the club’s transfer record in an attempt to secure the Spanish midfielder’s signature.

The presence of United figures like David Gill and more importantly Ed Woodward at Stamford Bridge on Sunday will on fan the flames, as United fans look to the club to reve

Whilst United are keen to sign Mata, there is no confirmation that Chelsea are willing to let him go especially to Manchester United. With Chelsea’s pursuit of Wayne Rooney bearing no fruit this summer, the London club could choose to play hardball knowing United’s position.

    A little bit wasting of time, United will look to add but i doesn’t think it’s Juan Mata.

  2. Nelson mwiseneza says:

    i think juan mata is agood player but Man united needs some one who is very intelligent and very tallented like januzaj that is to say some one who can hold balls in the midfield and that can supply complete passes.

    Mata is a good choice but wanna see central defensive midfielder to hold the midfield in absent of carrick,fletcher or jones. Like progba,vidal,cabaye.
