Valencia have confirmed they sold Spainish international midfielder Juan Mata to Chelsea for an estimated €27 million (£23.5m).
The 23-year-old, who will likely be asked to play in one of the advanced wide positions in Chelsea’s 4-3-3 formation, will now undergo a medical in London.
A statement on Valencia’s official website read:
“Valencia Football Club has reached an agreement in principle with Chelsea FC for the transfer of the player Juan Manuel Mata. The agreement is subject to the relevant medical tests.”
