  Man Utd have reportedly opened talks with Ander Herrera over a lucrative new contract. The Daily Star claims Jose Mourinho is willing to pay the Spaniard a whopping £175,000-a-week to ward off interest from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Here he is seen hard at training ahead of pre-season.

   The 27-year-old has been linked occasionally with the Catalan giants in recent times, with a new midfielder high on their agenda in this transfer window and Herrera emerging as an alternative to top target Marco Verratti.

Herrera has proven to be a key man at Old Trafford in recent years and formed a water-tight partnership with world-record signing Paul Pogba last season.

But the United ace’s performances have apparently put some big teams on red alert after he was crowned their Player of the Year.

Barca and Atletico are both long-term admirers of Herrera, who made his international debut for Spain last November.

But Mourinho has no intention of letting the 27-year-old leave and will reward him with a fresh deal instead.

Herrera already earns £100,000-a-week at Old Trafford but is entering the final year of his current contract. However, United plan on tying him down until 2021, the end of which would mark an eight-year stay.
