    Chelsea's Mata denies Barcelona move

    Jose Mourinho wants to sell Mata with Barcelona interested in order to raise funds for new signings.

    London: Juan Mata has rubbished the claims of moving out of Chelsea and said that he is happy at Stamford Bridge. However, reports in a Spanish newspaper claims that new coach Jose Mourinho wants to sell the midfielder with Barcelona interested in order to raise funds for new signings.

    Mata had a brilliant last season with 20 goals and 35 assists, but Mourinho wants to build the side on his terms in the second spell at the club.

    But Barcelona are keen on bagging the playmaker back to Spain this summer, two years after he left Valencia. Moreover, Barcelona won't mind to splurge after spending a lot to get Neymar.

    It has also been reported that Thiago Alcantra is linked with Manchester United move and also Christian Tello likely to exit Nou Camp. But Barcelona president Sandro Rossell feels that the fans will be able to accept the loss of Thiago and Tello with the coming of Mata.
