Juan Mata has denied rumours that he could be on his way out of Chelsea, according to Sky
The Blues midfielder was named the club’s player of the year last season, but this has not stopped reports coming through that he suddenly finds himself surplus to requirements following the arrival of new manager Jose Mourinho.
The 25-year-old, however, denied any knowledge that his future at the club may be in doubt, and insisted he is happy in West London.
“Nobody at Chelsea has told me that Mourinho wants me out,” he said.
“When I finished the season I was told that they were very happy with my performances and with the two years I’ve spent with the club.
“I have three years left on my contract. I’m very happy with Chelsea. Mourinho? I’d prefer to wait until I meet him and work with him before I judge him. That’s simple logic.”
Mata arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2011 from Spanish outfit Valencia, with the fee being reported at around £23.5m. He has impressed during his stay at the club, and has a contract that runs until 2018.
