Wenger questions Mourinho's decision to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United

Arsene Wenger has expressed his surprise at Chelsea’s willingness to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United but feels the rules of the transfer window need to be examined.

Mata’s proposed move to United is expected to be finalised before the weekend, but Wenger believes it is unfair that the deal will happen just days after the two teams played each other for the final time this season.

While United have played Chelsea twice, David Moyes’ side still have to face the Blues’ title challengers Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool and Wenger has called for the rules of the transfer window to be adapted to ensure there is fairness across the board.
“It opens again a little bit the opportunity of this transfer market because Chelsea had already played twice against Man United so they don’t play again,” Wenger told reporters at his weekly press conference.

“They could have sold him last week but it opens at least the opportunity [to question] the dates of this transfer window.

“Some teams have already played twice against one opponent and some others not. I think if you want to respect the fairness for everybody exactly the same, that should not happen.

“I just think you would want that everybody is on the same level. Chelsea do not make the rules but maybe the rules should be a bit more adapted to more fairness.”
Mata was named Chelsea’s player of the season for the past two years, but he has struggled to fit into Jose Mourinho’s plans, making just 17 appearances under the Portuguese coach.

Despite his lack of game time, Wenger is surprised by Chelsea’s decision to sell the World Cup winner.
“I am surprised because Juan Mata is a great player and Chelsea sell a great player to a direct opponent,” he continued.
