PSG have been encouraged in their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

Jose Mourinho has admitted Juan Mata's Chelsea absence is likely to continue as he cannot pick '12, 13 or 14' players.

PSG are ready to go as high as €40 million for the Spain international in January.

"It's hard for me. I don't have a special pleasure leaving players out. I enjoy playing them and making them happy, but there's nothing I can do," said Mourinho.
