"The contract is still ongoing with talks at the moment," the England international said. "I enjoy playing for Man United and my heart is at Man United.

"You have to battle for your place and it makes you more hungry on the training pitch and you know when you get your chance, you have to take it.

"The likes of Mkhitaryan, Zlatan, Pogba, big names in our team, it always good to look up to them and see what they have achieved and obviously we gain that experience off them and learn off them, especially the young players.
