Juventus are emerging as favourites for Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata. The Daily Express says United boss Louis van Gaal, who has employed a number of various tactics since taking the reigns after the World Cup, feels his strongest line-up includes Wayne Rooney playing in Mata's preferred No.10 role behind strikers Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao.
The Serie A champions are in danger of losing midfield star Arturo Vidal, with both the Red Devils and Real Madrid interested, and Massimo Allegri wants Mata to sit in behind ex-Manchester City star Carlos Tevez.
Valencia are also interested in the 26-year-old, who could be tempted by a return to his former club instead.
