United were keen to tie him down with fresh terms, but the club are unwilling to offer players over 30 deals that are longer than one year.
Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian, Andreas Pereira and Antonio Valencia could be the next stars to receive a new deal as they are all out of contract at the end of the season.
