– Man United Spanish players believe they are being treated unfairly against their English teammates
– They feel English stars are favoured in terms of contract negotiations as club tries to adopt home-based strategy
– Spanish trio including Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are likely to depart club this summer
Manchester United Spanish stars including David de Gea, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata reportedly believe preferential treatment is being given to English players.
The Red Devils are currently planning to return to ‘home-based’ strategy that made them successful under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to contend with the problem in the dressing-room in the closing weeks of the season.
England stars such as Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Ashley Young have all signed new contracts at Old Trafford this season but this has not been replicated with the Spanish contingent.
Herrera is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain having failed to reach personal terms with United, amid briefings the midfielder was asking for too much money.
De Gea, who is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world will enter the final year of his United contract at the end of the season despite prolonged negotiations.
And 30-year-old Mata is also due to leave as he is yet to renew his stay.
