New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho won't let Juan Mata leave to join Barcelona, the Daily Mirror have insisted.
The British tabloid has claimed that the Portuguese Coach will not allow the playmaker to join the Blaugrana, despite rumours in the Spanish Press reporting the contrary.
Several outlets have claimed that Tito Vilanova's men will make a substantial bid for the 25-year-old, but the Mirror believe that the former Real Madrid tactician will block any potential transfer.
Mata was influential in the west London club claiming the Europa League title and finishing third in the Premier League last term.
