Arsenal are considering a move for Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata on a free transfer, with Unai Emery a ‘big admirer’, according to reports.
The Daily Star write that the United man could prove an ‘irresistible bargain’ for Arsenal. The 30-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season, and the Gunners have shown they’re willing to snap up players on free transfers recently, with the likes of Sead Kolasinac and Stephan Lichtsteiner joining.
Mata’s contract was initially supposed to come to an end last summer, but United activated a one-year extension clause. This time around they don’t have that option.
