Mourinho to swap Mata for Joao Mario

07 Décembre 2017

Mourinho will not stand in his way and is even willing to help out by trying to work out a deal with his former club Inter Milan, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata has been offered to Inter Milan as part of a deal to bring Joao Mario to Old Trafford.

But the Red Devils are believed to be on the verge of triggering a one-year extension clause in his contract.

While that might have sounded insane at the beginning of the season, the Armenian's situation at Old Trafford has taken a turn for the worse, and there's every chance José Mourinho could consider it if he feels Joao Mario's arrival would provide his side with a boost.

However, Inter are not particularly interested in Mata, but could be open to a deal that includes Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mourinho is apparently looking for Mario and cash in return for Mkhitaryan's signature.

United are also interested in Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, although he is believed to favour a move to Juventus.

With Paris Saint-Germain also keen on Joao Mario, and their ability to offer Javier Pastore in exchange, it will be interesting to see who gets preferential treatment.

A company spokesperson said the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner had returned as a precaution due to "a possible engineering issue". An investigation is underway after two Air New Zealand 787 aircraft experienced engine abnormalities in recent days.
