Mata can decide to leave for Arsenal willingly
The Blues boss also shelled out £30million on Brazilian midfielder Willian from Anzhi and started with Schurrle against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup on Friday.
Mata was left out of Spain's squad for their World Cup qualifiers and will be desperate to make the competition in Brazil next year.
Arsene Wenger missed out on the Spaniard two years ago, when he left Valencia for Stamford Bridge, but is still a keen admirer of the playmaker.
The Gunners are willing to pay £30million for the player, but have left it to him, while Mourinho is also trying to cut the wage bill that has increased this summer.
