Juan Mata is a summer transfer target for Barcelona this summer, according to reports.
The Manchester United midfielder is out of contract in the summer and negotiations over a new deal are yet to talk place.
And, according to The Sun, Barcelona have made contact with Mata’s father and agent Juan Sr to begin talks for a multi-year deal.
The Catalan giants see the move as a great bit of business. With Mata unlikely to demand regular game time, a rotational role will suit the Spaniard.
And, should the 30-year-old become unhappy, he can then be sold on for a profit.
Although he has been hampered by a hamstring injury in recent weeks, the former Chelsea midfielder has made just five starts under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Mata did start the Red Devils’ 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday, but it remains to be seen if he has a future at Old Trafford beyond the end of the season.
