JUAN MATA has reportedly thrown open the door to a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plots a mass exodus.

The Spanish midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January.

The 32-year-old has clocked up 20 starts in total this season, but 12 of those have come in cup competitions.

And the partnership between Fernandes and Pogba, which has been bubbling away since football’s restart, could push Mata even closer to the exit door.

According to Turkish outlet Sansursuz Futbol, the 32-year-old is “eager” to leave United and is interested in Super Lig outfit Fenerbahce.

The Turkish side would have to fork out a fee for the midfield maestro as he only signed a new deal last June keeping him at Old Trafford until summer 2021.

Mata occupied the right midfield flank during the Red Devil’s FA Cup quarter-final victory over Norwich.

But Solskjaer preferred Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford on the channels during the 5-2 win over Bournemouth. 

Mata is a huge asset to the dressing-room and Fernandes, Odion Ighalo and Daniel James have all gushed over the former Chelsea man. 

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskajer has admitted he is looking to “exploit the transfer market” this summer

And with a whole host of players linked with a switch to Old Trafford, there will inevitably be a handful heading out the exit door.

The likes of Leicester star James Maddison, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho are all believed to be on the shortlist.

Jesse Lingard could be on his way out as he has also been pushed aside by the £67million arrival of Fernandes.

Chris Smalling has enjoyed a loan spell with Roma and it is believed the Serie A giants are keen on a permanent deal for the 30-year-old.

While Inter Milan are reportedly looking to make Alexis Sanchez’s loan move permanent for £18million.

Sanchez’s bumper £505,000-a-week salary has been a drain on United’s economy and Solskjaer is said to be eager to remove him from the wage bill.

And it’s no surprise to see error-prone Phil Jones on the list, having featured in just TWO Premier League games so far this season.

Simon Jordan says Harry Maguire is a ‘good central defender’, but is ‘gobsmacked he’s an £80m central defender’

pavlyuchenkova joins nadal and bart in pulling out of the us open due to coronavirus concerns

Russia‘s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova said on Wednesday that she will not travel to New York to take part in the US Open later this month as organisers could not guarantee her health and safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The US Open is set to be played from August 31 to September 12 even as the country leads the world with over 4.7million confirmed COVID-19 cases and more than 157,000 deaths, according to a Reuters.

Pavlyuchenkova, 29, joins the likes of men’s defending champion Rafa Nadal and women’s world number one Ash Barty who pulled out of the Grand Slam out of fear of contracting the novel coronavirus during their stay in the country.

‘I’ve been thinking a lot and decided not to play (the) U.S. Open this year,’ Pavlyuchenkova, ranked 30 in the world, said on Instagram.

‘It wasn’t easy because I hadn’t missed any Grand Slam in my entire career. Tennis is almost everything for me.

‘The main reason is insecurity, (the) U.S. Open doesn’t provide any guarantees. I don’t feel comfortable to travel to USA in such circumstances.

‘From this moment, every player is on his own. My team and I have decided it would be for the best not to participate.’

Although Barty has pulled out, nine of the women’s top 10 were named in the women’s field while world number one Novak Djokovic headlines the men’s field after organisers released the entry list on Tuesday.

While the men’s ATP Tour is yet to resume since it was suspended in March, the women’s WTA Tour returned this week with a tournament at Palermo where strict guidelines are in place to curb the spread of the virus.

Players are also scheduled to play at the Aug. 20-28 Western & Southern Open in New York, which serves as a warm-up event for the U.S. Open.

aberdeen given go ahead to play hamilton and st johnstone fixtures despite new coronavirus lockdown

Aberdeen’s clash at St Johnstone on Saturday is set to go ahead as planned despite the Granite City being thrust back into lockdown.

A fresh cluster of 54 coronavirus cases has forced First Minister Nicola Sturgeon into ordering a fresh round of restrictions on Aberdeen.

That sparked fears that the new Scottish Premiership season could be thrown into chaos just two weeks in.

But Scottish football’s Joint Response Group has no immediate concerns over the situation, with Hampden bosses currently happy for the Dons’ trip to Perth to go ahead.

Premiership clubs have been given an exemption which has allowed them to resume training and playing matches.

Under the terms of that exemption, players and team staff members are operating in a bubble and must undergo twice weekly testing to ensure any fresh outbreaks are swiftly caught and traced.

The latest round of results, released by the JRG on Tuesday, saw 1274 tests carried out across the 12 Premiership clubs plus Hearts and Glasgow City – with no positive results recorded.

The new measures introduced by the First Minister saw pubs and clubs in Aberdeen ordered to to shut as of 5pm on Wednesday, while residents also been warned against travelling more than five miles.

But Derek McInnes’ team will be given the green light to make the 148-mile round trip between Pittodrie and McDiarmid Park.

McInnes is hoping to see his team get back on track against Saints after kicking off the new campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Rangers at home on Saturday.

Aberdeen are also in action on Wednesday when they host Hamilton and, as things stand, that game is also unaffected.

While the Reds will carry on with their preparations, their women’s side has announced it is postponing training sessions.

The SWPL2 outfit – who do not start their season until October – tweeted: “Given today’s announcement by the First Minister relating to Aberdeen & some enforced lockdown restrictions, we feel as a club it would be best to postpone ALL training for the remainder of this week and next. We will keep you updated accordingly.”
