The Spaniard surprisingly found himself on the fringes of Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Jose Mourinho, and he is afraid he may lose his place in the national team if he remains with the Blues.
As a result, he may have to leave his current employers in search of first team football, with a number of high-profile clubs casting admiring glances his way.
Sunday People has suggested that Juventus and Atletico Madrid are both hoping to sign the 25-year-old on six-month loan.
Juan Mata has largely impressed since arriving at the club from Valencia, scoring 17 goals in his first two seasons and winning back to back Player of the Year awards.
However, he has featured in just 7 league games this term, as Jose Mourinho prefers using Brazilian Oscar in the central position.
