Tottenham Hotspur last night sought to beat Arsenal to the signing of the Valencia forward Juan Mata by tabling a bid worth close to €25m (£22m). Arsenal, whose manager, Arsène Wenger, admitted that Mata is a player he likes, remain the favourites to sign the 23-year-old but are yet to make a formal bid. Initial talks have suggested that Arsenal would offer less than Spurs, at least to begin with.

Mata's preference is to join Arsenal but, with Harry Redknapp making little secret of his pursuit of attacking players over the past six months, Spurs are seeking to force Valencia's hand and bring pressure to bear on the player. Mata's camp, though, is awaiting definitive movement from Arsenal. That may yet depend on the departure of Cesc Fábregas. Sources at Barcelona said they are cautiously optimistic about signing the midfielder – and that it was him or no one.

Mata, whose contract allows him to depart Valencia for €21m before 1 August, is open to a move to the Premier League. He already speaks a little English. Valencia, too, are keen to sell, with the sporting director, Braulio Vázquez, admitting: "We are ready if [Mata] does depart." The Spanish club's huge debt requires the annual sale of key players and Mata looks set to follow the footsteps of David Villa and David Silva to the exit.

According to an agreement reached when Mata last renewed his contract, Valencia are obliged to sell to a foreign club that matches the €21m bar before Monday. Spurs have made an offer that exceeds that minimum fee in order to strengthen their hand.


  • For Starters i dont think Mata want to join Spurs otherwise they would have just bid the buy-out clause.


  • Also Spurs dont need Mata as they already have Bale and VDV and they desperately need a striker.So it doesnt make any sense for Spurs to buy him.


  • And i cant see Arsenal matching Mata's buy-out clause before Monday unless Fabregas future is sorted today which is unlikely.


So does anyone apart from me think Spurs are just bidding just to piss of Arsenal and up his price considering Mata's buy-out clause extinguishes tomorrow and Valencia are not obliged to sell then?

Why we haven't made a bid for Mata I will never know.

Hope he stays in Valencia.

Was always going to happen che. Spurs just try to fit in, they don't have any scouts. They just bid for whoever their rivals go for and hope for the best. Neutral

They still need a whole new defence. Neutral

I'm pretty sure after the Modric saga Spurs will struggle to sign young players like Mata, Rossi etc.

Didnt they block his move only to prevent him from going to Chelsea?

I think they might react differently if Man utd comes in, no?

This is spurs we are talking about.

They bid 35mil for Aguero Rossi and Lorente in a single night and got all bids rejected.Then 6 months later cant afford Adebayor on loan.They just make bids for fun not with intention of signing players.

umm what you guys dont seem to understand about Mata's "buyout clause" is that it is not really a buy out clause. His buyout clause is somewhere in the region of 40-60 mill. This clause is simply that if a team were to bid 20+mill then Valencia would have to accept the offer or negotiate a better deal with him
Valencia do not have the obligation to accept the deal

Would hate to see Mata leave.

This debt is killing Valencia. At this rate, they will never be able to match the Barca-Real hegemony.

It looks like ancient history when Valencia had to considered as contenders and not just vying for CL spot.

Then again it is goal.com, and the source is "someone close to the player".
