Manchester United are in no rush to tie down men of the moment Juan Mata and Ander Herrera to new Old Trafford contracts.

A handful of Reds players' deals will expire in 2018.

United are close to announcing a new deal for young defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah but Mata, Herrera, Daley Blind, Luke Shaw and Marouane Fellaini are the first-teamers entering the last stages of present agreements.

With around 18 months to go the club would normally begin work on renewing deals.
