Jose Mourinho has reportedly become angry at how long Manchester United are taking to offer new contracts to some of his key players.

According to the Daily Mail, the United boss is frustrated at how long negotiations are taking for the renewal of a pair of players.

The agents of both Anthony Martial and Marcos Rojo reportedly opened talks with United in December over a renewal and demanded a pay rise, but two months later they are still awaiting a proposal from the club.

The duo will be out of contract at the end of next season, and Mourinho is concerned about the delay despite the Red Devils having the option of an extra year on Martial’s deal.

The long-term future of Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Daley Blind are also uncertain. All five had one-year options triggered by United, but there was no intent to discuss fresh terms.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror claim that Mourinho is bracing himself for defeat in their attempts to keep Marouane Fellaini, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Mourinho is apparently worried that the looming contract situation for several players will disrupt harmony within his squad.
