by Sam Peoples

Wayne Rooney and Phil Neville have both just followed Juan Mata‘s official Twitter account in what is the first official sign of contact between Manchester Untied and Chelsea.

Of course, it could be a complete coincidence that both our main striker and first team coach followed Mata within minutes of each other but putting two and two together, it is the strongest sign yet that a deal is close to being announced.

Sky Sports News reported that Mata was expected in Manchester tonight to complete a medical and that he would be unveiled as a United player tomorrow, but it may be the case that everything is concluded tomorrow instead as David Moyes has left Carrington already.

rooney-mataHave Chelsea really sold us a player who was named their player of the year for the last two seasons?

It was hard to believe at the start but everything points towards United breaking the club transfer record to sign him for £37 million.

Check out Rooney’s and Neville’s Twitter accounts for yourself.
