Roma are chasing Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata as an alternative to Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez.

The Serie A side have spent the summer chasing the 26-year-old midfielder, who is also on Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger’s radar.

Nonetheless, the Foxes have so far been successful in their bid to retain their star attacking midfielder, who expressed a desire to leave the King Power Stadium back in May.

As a result, Roma are exploring their options and according to Calciomercato, the Red Devils midfielder Mata has been identified as an alternative.

The 29-year-old Spain international modifier now has less than a year to run on his current deal.
