Josh worry for United

United are in serious danger of losing teenage sensation Josh Bohui.

Barcelona and Monaco have reportedly shown interest in the 19-year-old forward whose contract is up this season.

Bohui has struggled for starts of late and the report claims that is due to his contract standoff but the improvement of Mason Greenwood has also had a big impact on that.

Mata may be off

Midfielder Juan Mata accepts he is unsure where his future lies.

His contract at Old Trafford will expire at the end of the season - and there's no sign of a new one on the table.

The 30-year-old told Spanish outlet AS. “I don’t know. I’ve been in England for a good while, in a league that I’m well accustomed to and where I’ve adapted well, but it’s true that at times you miss home, your family, your friends.

Young 'wants to stay'

Ashley Young is up for extending his Old Trafford deal.

The utility player has entered the last six months of his deal and will sign on again if he figures in the plans for next season, ESPN report.

The club is looking to extend the 33-year-old’s current deal but Inter Milan are just one of four clubs keen to talk to him.
