Juan Mata - Tottenham Hotspur News

Juan Mata wants to stay at Valencia according to technical secretary Bralui Vazquez.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with the Spanish international while there has been reports that Arsenal have lodged an official bid.

Valencia claim they do not intend to sell and say the player is happy at Mestalla.

“I hope that he will stay with Valencia and I think he will do so. We have not received any offers for him so far,” Vazquez told regional sports daily SuperDeporte.

“However, we have a back-up plan in case he leaves. That’s not just the case for Juan, though. We have a plan like that for every player. We have to be prepared if something happens.”

“Juan is very calm and doesn’t get carried away. Of course, the rumours don’t go unnoticed, but there is absolutely no doubt about his commitment to Valencia,” he said.
