Mata, who has arguably been Chelseaâ€™s most consistent performer for the last two seasons, has revealed heâ€™s going nowhere.
He said: "I was so relaxed about all the speculation about me leaving. I spoke to the club and spoke to the manager who said I was very important to them. So thereâ€™s nothing to say about it.
"Itâ€™s always very good to hear you are important to the club. Everyone wants to feel they are important.
"So Iâ€™m very happy. Iâ€™m training with the new manager and we want to improve on last season."
