Chelsea angry over Barcelona push to unsettle Mata

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to KEEP Juan Mata next season. The Mirror says Chelsea will head off Barcelona's attempts to prise Mata away from the west Londoners by making clear to the 23-year-old that he is a huge part of the plan for the new season.

While reluctant to enter into any war of words with the Catalan giants over their Player of the Season, Chelsea are understood to be extremely unhappy at what appears to be an attempt to unsettle a player they believe will be one of their key players in the next few years.

Mourinho's determination to keep Mata at the club and onside - a new five-year deal could be on the cards as a statement of intent - will reassure Blues fans, who have taken the little Spaniard to their hearts.
