Mourinho: I’ll not block Mata’s Chelsea exit

Posted on 02/01/2014 in Premier League

Jose Mourinho has told Chelsea's two-time Player of the Year Juan Mata he can leave Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window.

The Spaniard has been a peripheral figure under the Special One and showed open signs of discontent when he was subbed during yesterday's win against Southampton.

Now Mourinho has invited bids for the World Cup winner.

He said: "I want to keep him. I don't want him to go. That is my opinion, my wish, but my door is open.

"The club's door is open too so when a player wants to speak to us we are there waiting for them."

Mourinho has openly said that he doesn't not believe his squad is capable of challenging for the Premier League this season and sees Manchester City as the favourites to win the title. 

Will Mata still be at Chelsea come February? Can the Chelsea players prove Mourinho wrong?
