Manchester United have offered Juan Mata a new contract but Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia have been released by the club.

The 31-year-old, who has been at Old Trafford for five years since signing from Chelsea in January 2014, scored six goals in 32 appearances last season across all competitions.

Mata is out of contract in the summer and Sky Sports News understands he has already held talks with Barcelona over a proposed move to the Nou Camp.

Club captain Valencia was not given a new contract after making just nine appearances last season.

Herrera confirmed his departure last month in a video released on United's official Twitter account and has agreed terms to join Paris Saint-Germain.

A number of players loaned out last season, including Regan Poole and James Wilson, are also being released.
