LONDON (REUTERS) - Manchester United's 37 million-pound (S$78.4 million) bid for playmaker Juan Mata has been accepted by Premier League rivals Chelsea, Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper reported on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014.

The paper said Mata had agreed personal terms with the English champions and will undergo a medical on Thursday.

The Spain international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after struggling to cement a regular starting spot under manager Jose Mourinho.

The 25-year-old has found game time hard to come by this season, with Mourinho favouring Brazil internationals Oscar and Willian and Belgium's Eden Hazard.
