Barcelona are ready to rejoin the race for Chelsea star Juan Mata, according to French newspaper Le10Sport.

The source claims that the reigning Spanish champions are interested in the prospect of bringing the out of favour playmaker to the Nou Camp, and are ready to go head to head with Paris Saint-Germain in order to get their man.

Mata has been repeatedly linked with the exit door at Stamford Bridge this season, and speculation surrounding his future has heightened since the opening of the winter transfer window.
