Manchester United Not in a Hurry to Renew Some Senior Player’s Contracts

Some of Manchester united players like Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are already beginning to consider their future at Old Trafford but the club is not in a rush to hand the Spanish internationals new contract deals.


Most players at Manchester united would see their contracts come to an end in 2018. With united already set to hand Fosu Mensah a new contract, players like Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini, Mata, Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera are already entering the last stages of their contract with the club.

There is still time enough time to review the contracts of their players and it is understood that there is really no need to panic over the issue considering the fact that the players have an option to sign a contract extension with the club.

United could use the contract extension to their advantage instead of allowing the player’s see out their deals and leave for free.

Juan Mata arrived at Old Trafford under David Moyes in January 2014 for a fee of £37.5m and was rumored to be sold when Jose Mourinho was appointed manager of Manchester United but the Spanish playmaker has cemented his place in the Portuguese starting eleven and holds the No.10 role in Jose formation.

Ander Herrera has proved to be resourceful for Jose Mourinho following his recent partnership with French midfielder Paul Pogba.  Herrera arrived at Old Trafford from Atletico Bilbao in 2014 under former manager Louis Van Gaal.

Daley Blind has impressed Jose Mourinho since the beginning of the premier league campaign even while playing as a left back defender.

Manchester united can relax and plan what happens next since each of these players still has a one year option clause in their contract. Antonio Valencia’s contract expires at the end of the season but the versatile player also has a one year contract extension clause in his contract.

The 31year old has been a regular starter for Jose Mourinho and he would have to wait till the end of the season to see if United would grant him a one year contract extension or not.
