Fenerbahce have made an offer for Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata according to the Turkish outlet Fotospor.

The report states that the Yellow Canaries have tabled a loan bid for the Spain international. Mata’s future at United has been called into question following Jose Mourinho’s appointment in place of Louis van Gaal.

United manager Mourinho offloaded Mata from Chelsea to United during his second spell with the Blues. The Spanish newspaper El Confidencial have claimed the Portuguese manager is open to selling Spain Mata over the summer transfer window.

Fenerbahce have built up a strong relationship with United after signing both Robin van Persie and Luis Nani from the Red Devils over the summer transfer window.

Van Persie and Nani had an impressive breakthrough season for Fenerbahce who finished runners-up this season having scored, 22 and 12 goals, respectively.

The Yellow Canaries finished the league campaign as runners-up and lost the Turkish Cup final against Galatasaray but will compete in the Champions League.

Mata scored 10 times while providing 11 assists for United last season and has another two-years left on his contract.
