Mata frustrated as Chelsea delay United switch
Juan Mata is growing frustrated with Chelsea for delaying his £37 million move to Manchester United having already agreed personal terms, according to the Telegraph.
Chelsea are yet to complete the transfer agreement and sanction Mata's departure for a medical, despite him agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal worth £150,000 a week at United.
Mata remained in London on Thursday, even though ground staff at United's Aon Training Complex had prepared a helipad for his arrival. He had been due to fly in for a medical.

However United were forced to hold off until Friday with Chelsea waiting until they had wrapped up the signing of Basel's Mohamed Salah - dubbed the 'Egyptian Messi'.
The deal is still expected to be completed in the next 48 hours, though, with the Telegraph reporting that senior United figures are unconcerned by the delays.
Mata remains hopeful the transfer can be concluded before the end of the weekend, with United's next fixture against Cardiff on Tuesday.
