Juan Mata: Happy to stay at Chelsea

Chelsea winger Juan Mata has no plans to move away from Stamford Bridge despite widespread speculation about his Blues future during the recent transfer window.

The Spain international, 25, was named as Chelsea's player of the year last season but has fallen out of favour with the returning Jose Mourinho, playing just 65 minutes of competitive football under the Portuguese boss so far this campaign.

But despite links to Paris St Germain and Arsenal as the transfer window drew to a close on Monday evening, Mata remains a Chelsea player and the former Valencia man intends on keeping it that way.

"I think it's normal in every transfer window that there are lots of rumours but I'm happy here," he told Chelsea TV.

"It's been a very, very good two seasons for me here, maybe the best of my career, and what I want this season is the same.

"I'm looking forward to achieving as many trophies as we did the last two seasons and hopefully this is going to be a good season for us again."

The signings of Marco van Ginkel, Andre Schurrle and Willian, with Kevin De Bruyne also returning to the club after a spell out on loan, have given Mourinho plenty of options in attacking positions, but Mata is seemingly willing to fight for a place in the side.
