Big Serie A trio target Man Utd veteran Mata

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is a Bosman target for Serie A clubs.

The Sun says Juventus, Roma and Inter Milan have all shown interest in the Spanish midfielder with his current deal at Old Trafford due to expire in the summer.

United have the option to trigger a 12 month extension for the 32-year-old – but he has started only eight matches in all competitions this year.

He remains happy with the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer values him as a key man around the club he has served for more than seven years.

But the former Chelsea man is also keen to play more regular football in the final years of his career.

Inter – who have recently signed Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young from United – have been showing the most interest so far.

The other two clubs are more likely to make a move if he is a free agent in June, rather than seek immediate pre-contract talks.
