The Spaniard’s future at Old Trafford is uncertain following the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager and he has reportedly handed in a transfer request at the club.

Everton have been linked with a move for the former Chelsea playmaker but they are not expected to face an easy run at him.

Now, according to Turkish newspaper Milliyet, Fenerbahce are still working out an approach for Mata as they bid to replace Nani in their attack.

And it has been claimed that the Super Lig side will not be put off by his high asking price this summer – and may make a move in the coming days.
