Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are looking to raid the English Premier League for possible player signings in the summer transfer window, according to reports. After outlining their interest toward the idea of signing Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori permanently, they now want to make it a double raid on the Premier League as they have sighted Manchester United midfielder, Juan Mata, as a possible transfer target.

Mata is currently playing in the last year of his United contract but has been largely restricted to only a few games since the start of the season. He has been largely used in the UEFA Europa League competition this campaign but he’s also not been playing enough games. His last appearance came in the 6-2 thrashing of AS Roma in the Europa League on Thursday and it was only a cameo appearance he made.

Reports claim that Milan have already opened talks for the possible permanent transfer of Tomori from Chelsea to the San Siro, and the same reports are suggesting that they could as well start negotiations with Manchester United for Mata in the coming weeks. According to the reports, they could wait for the Spanish midfielder’s contract to run down and if he does not sign an extension, they will be looking to snap him up on a free transfer.

Mata, 33, could be tempted by the offer of playing more games than he’s currently doing at United and if he gets that promise, he could well agree to the move. He has also been linked with a move to the Major League Soccer, with clubs like Los Angeles Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, and Atlanta United all seeking to take him to the United States. Either way, he’s expected to decide on his future in the coming days.
