Man Utd to sell Mata & Blind this summer

RUMOURS: Man Utd to sell Mata & Blind this summer
The two players will be allowed to leave the Red Devils before the start of the new campaign after being deemed surplus to requirements by the club's new manager


Manchester United will sell Juan Mata and Daley Blind this summer, following the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, according to Sky Sports.

The two players are not expected to feature in the Portuguese's plans for the new campaign and will be allowed to leave, if acceptable bids are made.

Barcelona appears a possible destination for Mata, who was sold by Mourinho to Manchester United in 2014 with the new Red Devils boss still not convinced by the Spaniard's suitability to his system.

Blind, meanwhile, is also set to leave with Mourinho believed to prefer tall, fast central defenders while the Netherlands international has also been critical of Louis van Gaal's departure.
