So, Mata will be plying his trade in London now, for Chelsea. Took 27 or 28 million euros to get him to show up to Stamford Bridge about twice a week.
Its not the best news, but not as bad as the departure of Silva and Villa. Still, it seems it will be some time before Valencia rummages around the expensive transfer bin for players.
Also, I just read that Isco had been sold to Malaga. Kind of disappointing, as he was considered to be the new Silva, or something to that effect. Monetary differences between Valencia and Isco?
