JUAN MATA is being tracked by at least three top clubs in Italy as his Manchester United future hangs in the balance.
Juventus, Roma and Inter Milan have all shown interest in the Spanish midfielder with his current deal at Old Trafford due to expire in the summer.1Mata has featured sparingly for Man Utd so far this seasonCredit: Getty Images - Getty
United have the option to trigger a 12 month extension for the 32-year-old – but he has started only eight matches in all competitions this year.
He remains happy with the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer values him as a key man around the club he has served for more than seven years.
But the former Chelsea man is also keen to play more regular football in the final years of his career.
Inter – who have recently signed Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young from United – have been showing the most interest so far.
The other two clubs are more likely to make a move if he is a free agent in June.
Mata would also have the option of a lucrative move to the Middle East while he hopes there would be clubs from his homeland also keen.
The former Chelsea man signed for Man Utd from Stamford Bridge for £37.1million in January 2014.

Bayern Munich CONFIRM Erling Haaland transfer interest as Hansi Flick claims deal ‘very much possible’ for Dortmund star
BAYERN MUNICH confirmed their interest in Erling Haaland as manager Hansi Flick admitted a transfer is ‘very much possible’.
Star striker Haaland has emerged as one of the hottest commodities in Europe, and put it on full display against the German champions.2Bayern Munich confirmed their interest in Erling HaalandCredit: EPA 2Hansi Flick admitted a transfer for is Erling Haaland ‘very much possible’Credit: Reuters
He scored twice in nine minutes to stun Bayern into an early deficit.
But the match ended 4-2, thanks to a hat-trick from hitman Robert Lewandowski.
His manager Flick was asked about Haaland one day replacing Lewandowski, with a deal far from out the picture.
He told Sky Germany before the game: "Very, very much is possible in life, nothing can be ruled out.
"But that is a long way off. He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs."
Bayern prized Lewandowski away from their rivals in 2014, having also done the same with Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.
But Gotze and Hummels both ended up returning to Dortmund.
Bayern are not the only ones interested in 20-year-old Haaland, who improved to 19 goals in as many Bundesliga games.

Manchester United last season failed in a move for the forward, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer meeting with the player.
And now United are joined by City and Chelsea in the pursuit for the serial goalscorer.
Real Madrid are also linked with Haaland, with the view of replacing frontman Karim Benzema, 34.
Haaland's contract expires in 2024, but a £65million release clause is understood to come into play two years beforehand.
But any buyers looking to act fast in next summer's window can be expected to front £150m for Dortmund's prize possession.
As a result, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke does not expect any mega-money offers for Haaland or strike partner Jadon Sancho, 20.
Watzke said: “Overall, I don't think that crazy things will happen."Fans joke Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland won't leave Dortmund after they hire 'world's sexiest athlete' Alicia Schmidt to train them
