Mata is in talks over a summer switch to Barcelona according to Sky Sports.
He's been free to talk to foreign clubs with his current contract expiring at the end of June.
And it appears Barcelona are in pole position to acquire his services. They are in talks with the 30-year-old over a multi-year deal.
The Catalan club view the transfer as a great piece of business. An experienced, squad player who'll unlikely demand regular first-team football.

Mata ventured to England in 2011 after four seasons at Valencia and speaking earlier in the year, he hinted at a move back to Spain.
"I've been in England for a while, but it's true that at times you miss home, your family, your friends," he said.
"But I don't know if I'll return to Spain in the near future. I'm calm, I'm at the fantastic club that is Manchester United, one of the biggest in the world."
Mata transferred to Chelsea in 2011 and spent two-and-half seasons at Stamford Bridge, before sealing a move to Old Trafford in January 2014.
He's been at the club ever since but it seems like his days at United are numbered.
