Manchester United duo Ander Herrera and Juan Mata could quit the club if Louis van Gaal keeps his job at Old Trafford, according to The Times.
It appears that Herrera and Mata have grown frustrated with their manager; Herrera, who has just returned from injury, hasn't been able to establish himself as a key man for the Red Devils during his 18-months with the club.
Mata, on the other hand, has often had to star out wide despite being recognised as a central attacking playmaker.

In fact, the Daily Mail claim that the Spanish duo are leading a revolt against Van Gaal, who has come under increasing pressure recently. They reportedly believe that their confused playing role at the club will hinder their chances of securing a place in the Spain squad for Euro 2016.
But it remains to be seen as to whether Van Gaal stays on in Manchester. United have failed to secure a victory in their last six outings and have suffered three consecutive defeats. Recent reports have suggested that the Dutchman could be on his way out of Old Trafford sooner rather than later.
The United boss has it all to do to save his job; with the festive period on the horizon, it appears that nothing less than maximum points will do for the Dutchman.
It won't be easy, though; United are set for a tricky Boxing Day clash away at Stoke City, while they play host to Chelsea just two days later.
