Rafael’s future at the club might be in doubt thanks to the imminent signing of 25-year-old Matteo Darmian but he was smiling from ear to ear in this picture with his United teammates. He turns 25 today and has been at the club since 2008.
Ashley Young, who turns 30 today, appears to be reaching his peak at Manchester United and had an excellent season last year, ultimately keeping Angel di Maria out of the starting XI.
Herrera, 25, joined the club from Athletic Bilbao last year and quickly found himself in the middle of everything that United were doing both on and off the field. He has been praised by team-mates for his personality and for his skills on the field too.

Herrera has been at Old Trafford for under 12 months but is already a fans’ favourite by doing and saying all the right things.
It remains to be seen whether the three men in the photo will be teammates next season but for now, they appear happy as United’s pre-season training begins with their tour of North America on the horizon.
