Liverpool continue to be linked with Valencia ace Juan Mata. Not much is going to happen regarding this transfer until Mata finishes representing Spain at the European Under 21 tournament taking place in Denmark right now. It is thought that Valencia are willing to to sell Mata if they get a decent offer.

Mata recently played for Spain against England in the Under 21 Tournament and he was up against Liverpool new boy Jordan Henderson.

Below is a video courtesy of ElPistoleroJFT96 which shows highlights of Mata’s display against England in a match that ended 1-1. You can not read much into one video but Mata put in a decent performance for Spain. He was not deployed as an out and out winger which is where we would really want him to play for us, rather he looked more like a Luis Garcia type player.
