Manchester United midfielder,Juan Mata is eying a move to join Barcelona despite being a free agent this summer.
Mata has a greater chance to get a closer at his potential new destination as his United side lock horns with the Catalan giants at the Nou Camp tonight in quarter-final second leg of the Champions League.
United has a difficult task to turn around their first-leg 1-0 deficit at Old Trafford, where they failed to even register a single shot on target for the first time in the competition since Opta stats were introduced.
The Spanish midfield man has had talks with the Laliga leaders since the start of this month and his schemer is obviously attracted by the idea of seeing out the remainder of his peak years playing alongside Lionel Messi.
However, sources have hinted an agreement doesn’t appear to hinge over his financial terms, with Barca even reluctant to match his present United salary of £170,000-per-week.
The 30-year-old man is yet to open up on any contract extension at the club and have already turned down offers from elsewhere in expectation to Barcelona’s commitment.
