After recently parting ways with Andres Iniesta, Japanese J-League club Vissel Kobe is pursuing another Spanish legend.
According to Japanese media outlet Sportshochi, Vissel Kobe is pursuing Mata, who has previously played for top European clubs including Valencia, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Galatasaray, and is considered one of the best attacking midfielders in Spain.
Mata has been without a club since the end of the 2022-2023 season, when he played for Galatasaray. Therefore, there is no transfer fee involved. Also, with one of their key midfielders, Mizuki Saito, suffering a major injury and out for the long term, they need a proven resource to fill the void. The Japanese J-League allows free agents to sign until September 8, so there are no restrictions on keeping Mata.바카라사이트
Vissel Kobe has used star marketing to great effect in the past with Iniesta. In addition to Iniesta, Lukas Podolski, David Villa, and many others have donned the Vissel Kobe jersey. It will be interesting to see if Mata joins their ranks.
