Chelsea 'stall' on Man United Juan Mata deal

Juan Mata said to be 'frustrated' by Chelsea's reluctance to finalise move

According to the Telegraph, Manchester United have agreed terms with Juan Mata on a four-and-a-half year contract, but the Spaniard has been left frustrated by Chelsea's reluctance to finalise his move.

It is thought that Jose Mourinho will only sanction the transfer once he has secured the signing of Basel winger Mohamed Salah, who is also a target for Liverpool.

Chelsea yesterday confirmed they had agreed a fee with the Swiss club for Salah, even though he is a player Brendan Rodgers has been chasing for several months.

Mata had been due to undergo a medical in Manchester on Thursday, which has been delayed by Chelsea's reluctance to push through the deal.
