Manchester United suffer blow in tying down Ander Herrera and Juan Mata to new contracts

Manchester United are having trouble tying down Ander Herrera and Juan Mata to new deals.

Both players are out of contract this summer and could leave the club for free.

Ander Herrera and Juan Mata have been Manchester United team-mates for almost five years

Herrera and Mata had been sidelined with hamstring problems after being forced off in last month’s goalless draw with Liverpool, but they both made their injury returns against Wolves last weekend.

The Mirror report the pair’s agents are pushing for bumper wages for their clients, something United are not prepared to give them.

Herrera’s representatives are believed to be asking for a contract extension that would make the Spaniard one of the top earners at Old Trafford.

It has led to a standoff in talks as United’s stars have been demanding bigger salaries due to Alexis Sanchez’s £500,000-a-week wage.

Herrera, who has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, reportedly wants the club to double his £120,000-a-week wage, while Mata is hopeful of an increase on his £140,000-a-week pay packet.

Herrera has played a significant part in United’s revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Mata also playing well when called upon.

The duo have been at the club since 2014, playing a combined total of 400 games.
