Juan Mata is set to undergo a medical today after Chelsea accepted a £37million bid from Manchester United for the playmaker.

The 25-year-old is due to travel up to Manchester this morning after the Blues last night agreed the sale of the Spaniard.

Mata trained alone alone at Chelsea’s Cobham training complex yesterday while the finer details of his big-money move to Old Trafford were ironed out.

He has become disillusioned at life in west London after being pushed down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho and wants first-team football ahead of this summer’s World Cup.

Reacting angrily at Mourinho’s decision to substitute him in the New Year’s Day victory over Southampton was the beginning of the end for the midfielder.

Reports suggest the Blues could now battle Liverpool for the signature of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah to help fill the void created by Mata’s departure.

Mata is expected to sign a four-and-a-half year deal with the champions, with United manager David Moyes refusing to answer questions on the Spain international last night.

Chelsea paid £23.5m to sign Mata from Valencia in 2011.
