Valencia winger Juan Mata is staying calm over talk of a move away this summer.

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola regards Mata highly, while Manchester City have enquired about him during high-level talks with Valencia a fortnight ago.

Mata's agent said last night: "So far there has been no concrete offer, but both we and Valencia are aware of the interest of European clubs."

Barca are regarded as favourites for the former Real Madrid Castilla prospect.
