Well it was a tense transfer deadline day wasn't it. We sat there waiting for any news on any other potential signings and instead, saw Victor Moses and Romelu Lukaku leave the club on loan to the two Merseyside clubs.

That wasn't the main concern I had that day. There was a real worry that with constant report and speculation appearing all over the media and social networks, the future of Juan Mata at Chelsea was under threat and it was something I really couldn't contemplate.

Our player of the year for the last two seasons was the subject of interest from some of Europe's top clubs and being honest, because he hadn't played under Mourinho despite being fit, it was something we had to contemplate.

The player himself has been quick to reaffirm his intentions to stay at Chelsea and that is exactly the news I had been waiting for.

Speaking to Chelsea TV, Mata is quoted as saying:
'I think it’s normal in every transfer window that there are lots of rumours but I’m happy here.
It’s been a very, very good two seasons for me here, maybe the best of my career, and what I want this season is the same.
I’m looking forward to achieving as many trophies as we did the last two seasons and hopefully this is going to be a good season for us again.
My only aim is to play here, grow as a player and do as good a season as the last two which were amazing for me.
These two seasons have flown by... but to me this is good because when you are enjoying things and you are happy, time goes quicker.
I had four weeks off and to be honest that’s too much time for me because in the last five or six years I didn’t have this sort of rest.
But I’ve had plenty of rest and now I’m feeling really good. The best thing for me is to play because I love to play.'

So, he wants to stay and as Mourinho had said himself, he wanted him to stay. With the run of games Chelsea have coming up it will be interesting to see how Mourinho approaches things and if Mata will be given a start sooner rather than later.

One thing is for sure, Juan Mata is vital to Chelsea's success in my eyes and I really, really hope he can force himself into the starting eleven sooner rather than later.
