Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has said he has no plans to move away from Stamford Bridge despite speculation about his future.
The Spain international has only played 65 minutes of competitive football so far this campaign, but has no plans to leave the club when the transfer window reopens in January, despite being linked with moves to Paris St-Germain and Arsenal.
“I think it’s normal in every transfer window that there are lots of rumours but I’m happy here,” he told Chelsea TV.
“It’s been a very, very good two seasons for me here, maybe the best of my career. I’m looking forward to achieving as many trophies as we did in the last two seasons.”
Mata, 25, switched to Chelsea from Valencia in August 2011 for a fee of £23.5m and has moved on to becoming a regular member of the squad, scoring 12 league goals last season on his way to being nominated for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award eventually won by Gareth Bale.
He signed a 6-year contract extension with the west London outfit on 22 December 2012.
