Reports of Fenerbahce making an offer for Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata sparked a social media storm yesterday.
Fotospor reported that the Yellow Canaries have made a loan offer for the Spanish international midfielder.
Mata is no favourite of current head coach Jose Mourinho and found himself forced out of Chelsea when the pair were at the Blues.
The 29-year-old could again find himself on the way out in a similar fashion to what happened at the Blues.
Fenerbahce do have history with United having signed both Luis Nani and Robin van Persie from the club last summer.
We took a look at how United fans reacted to the news on social media.
Some fans seemed to have forgot that Fenerbahce signed two high profile United players last summer
Mata hasn't reached such a low point to play in Turkish League. https://t.co/RX5nAEeShn

Hope Juan Mata doesnt go to Fenerbache. Would rather him go to Spurs or Everton or back to valencia. Movement looks inevitable.

Not all Fenerbahce fans seem keen on the transfer either.
Not sure if Juan Mata could cut it in TSL and no way we can afford his wages. Aatif would be much better choice. #Fenerbahce
