Tottenham and Barcelona are monitoring Juan Mata's new contract talks at Valencia.

Sport says Mata's father, who along with representing his son is also part of Traffic's Spanish arm, has approached Valencia about opening new contract talks.

Tottenham and Barcelona are keeping tabs on developments, with both clubs keen to prise Mata away from the Mestalla before the summer market shuts.

There is even talk of Mata buying out the remainder of his contract at Valencia and leaving on a free transfer.
