The Telegraph are now reporting that Manchester United’s bid for Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has been accepted, and that the Spanish international is due to undergo a medical on Thursday.

Chelsea have accepted a £37million bid for Juan Mata and immediately released the Spanish international to join Manchester United to complete the most dramatic deal of the transfer window. Mata will undergo a medical on Thursday at United before completing the move that will see him more than double his £70,000-a-week Chelsea salary at Old Trafford.

Although there is no confirmation for either club, the two journalists assigned to the story (Mark Ogden and Jason Burt) were the first to report on the Premier League champions considering a £37m bid, on Monday night.

If or when the move is confirmed, SN will be first to publish a Chelsea fan’s perspective.
