Atletico Madrid have made a bold move for Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

AS says Atletico have sent a club official to London to pursue the bid with Chelsea.

Atletico lost Radamel Falcao, their talisman from last season, to Monaco over the summer for £50million and have so far struggled to fill the gap he left.

He could also be a replacement for disgruntled forward Adrian who could soon be off to Roma.
