Juan Mata to Barcelona?

Marca reports that Barcelona's coach Guardiola has given his blessing for the signing of Juan Mata if the deal with Sanchez fails.

For those who do not know Barcelona are currently trying to sign Alexis Sanchez from Udinese and are offering 28 million euros and Jeffren for him. The player wants to join Barcelona, but Udinese have recived a 40 million offer from Manchester City and want to sell the player to City.

Reportedly Barcelona want to bring two high profile and qulity players this summer so they are unable to raise the offer for Sanchez. Barcelona reportedly have 50 million euros for transfers, plus any selling they do.

Another option is Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal but Barcelona have already had 30 million bid for the striker rejected and reports have it that Juventus are planing to offer 40 million euros for Rossi. This leaves Barcelona with the option of signing Juan Mata who is reportedly to be let go if an offer of 30 million euros comes through to Valencia CF.
