Manchester United midfielder is weighing up his options ahead of the summer transfer market.
The Spain international is said to be interested in a summer transfer to Turkish outfit Fernerbahce according to reports.
Mata has been a bit part player this season and has further fallen out of prominence with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in the summer.
It is understood that the former Chelsea ace is seeking a fresh start after spending the last nine years in England.
Mata is entering the final part of his career and a move to Fernabahce could be the right move.
The Turkish side have begun talks with the player and are hopeful of agreeing a deal with Manchester United with regards to a transfer bid.
Mata is regarded highly by United fans but he has clearly lost the ability to play at the very top clubs. He still has a year left on his current deal and Manchester United will be open to sell and free up some needed funds off their wage bill.
Mata featurerd in Manchester United last game from the bench in their 5-2 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League.
