Rafa & Mata both interested in a possible move

Valencia winger Juan Mata has revealed Rafa Benitez's interest in signing him while the player's father has hinted at problems within the Spanish club that could push Mata towards a £16.5million move to Liverpool.

Mata is in sensational form in Spain's La Liga but Valencia's financial problems mean the club could be forced to accept an offer for the 21-year-old midfielder.

Although the player in under contract until 2012, he is only earning around £10,000-a-week. Valencia have offered improved terms but the deal was not to the liking of Mata or his father, Juan Snr.

The player's father, also his agent, said: 'We want Valencia to recognise the kid's true quality, and it's not only a matter of money.'

Juan Jnr added: 'This matter is all down to the club and my agent. Benitez is a big coach but I just want to concentrate on my game without any distractions.'
Benitez's interest in Mata could spell the end of unfancied forward Ryan Babel's Anfield career.
