Will Tottenham swoop for Juan Mata after missing out on Willian?
Spurs might have been denied the opportunity to sign Willian, although it appears as though Juan Mata could be a surprise arrival at White Hart Lane.

Mata started last week’s 2-1 win against Aston Villa for Chelsea, although the Spaniard wasn’t in the starting line-up for Monday’s game at Old Trafford and it appears that Tottenham are ready to spend some of the Gareth Bale money on Mata.
It appears that Real Madrid will spend £86million bringing the Welshman to the Bernabeu, which gives Spurs plenty of spending power before the transfer window closes, although whether Jose Mourinho is prepared to sell to Chelsea’s London rivals is another matter.
AVB was apparently furious when Willian decided to opt for Stamford Bridge after having a medical at White Hart Lane, although this jeopardises the Chelsea future of Mata and the Daily Mail report that a Mata move to Tottenham could be on the cards.
It appears that Bale has been given the green light to sign for Real Madrid, with a world record £86million deal apparently agreed on Sunday night, which will see the Welshman link up with former Spurs team-mate Luka Modric, not to mention the vastly talented Cristiano Ronaldo.
