Valencia want to take Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata back to the Mestalla.

The Daily Mail says Valencia are lining up an ambitious move to re-sign Mata from Chelsea during the January transfer window.

Mata, who moved to Chelsea from Valencia in 2011, has been relegated down the pecking order by new Blues boss Jose Mourinho and is considering his future.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Real Madrid are among the sides who are keeping tabs on Mata's situation ahead of the new year.
