Juan Mata reportedly turned down wages of £550,000 a week from Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG before committing his future to Manchester United.

The Spanish midfielder took up the option of a two-year contract extension at Old Trafford last month after reaching the end of his previous deal.

Mata had been strongly tipped to leave United after five-and-a-half years at the club, but he was persuaded to stay on until the age of 33, with the option of another 12 months.

According to 90min, the former Chelsea star's decision to remain is even more surprising given that he was offered a mammoth salary to join Shanghai SIPG.

United used Mata 32 times in all competitions last season, with exactly half of those appearances being Premier League starts.

Report: Manchester United dig in heels over Romelu Lukaku fee

Manchester United have reportedly reiterated to Inter Milan that they have to pay £75m or forget about signing Romelu Lukaku.

Inter have sent representatives to London to discuss a deal for the Belgium international, who is a part of United's squad for their pre-season tour of Australia and Asia.

Lukaku is keen to leave Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order and he sat out training on Thursday as speculation over his future continues to mount.

The Nerazzurri are struggling to find the money to buy the 26-year-old, however, and The Sun claims that United are not interested in any alternative offers such a player-plus cash deal or an initial loan move with an obligation to buy.

United chiefs are not budging on their valuation of Lukaku, which is the same amount they paid to sign him from Everton two years ago.

Meanwhile, the report indicates that the Red Devils will have to pass on £5m to Everton from any transfer under the terms of their deal in 2017.

Jurgen Klopp: 'Rhian Brewster has important role to play this season'

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster has been told by manager Jurgen Klopp he has an important role to play this season.

The 19-year-old, who scored twice in a 6-0 pre-season friendly win against Tranmere, could end up saving the Reds boss millions in the transfer window if he fulfils his potential.

He has been lined up to fill the boots vacated by Daniel Sturridge as the team's third-choice centre-forward after Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi, who has just signed a new contract.

However, Klopp wants the player to start developing his all-round game.

"I love the boy, he is fantastic player, but one of the goals I would have scored," said Klopp.

"We knew Rhian was a good player before. Why should I play it down? I just don't want to talk after a game about the guy who scored two goals.

"I saw a really good game and Rhian is a fantastic player.

"One hundred per cent [it is a big season] but it depends on him as well. Divock Origi stays which is good news, Bobby Firmino is still there.

"Rhian Brewster is a top striker, he is a top talent and I have told him already that he has an important role this year but how important depends on him.

"We will see. He has to play different positions as well – the centre, wing is possible I think, we will see how we line up, but there will be opportunities for him. I am sure."

Liverpool have so far signed youngster Sepp Van Den Berg but are not expected to make any major signings this summer.

"Rhian Brewster, (Alex) Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't play last year, all the young boys didn't play for us last year," said Klopp.

"The transfer market is open. We will see what we do, but I don't think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time."

In addition to Brewster's double there were also goals for Origi, Curtis Jones, Bobby Duncan and Nathaniel Clyne in a squad which relied heavily on youth, with a number of internationals still to return to training.

Of the squad which won the Champions League 40 days ago, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Origi and Joel Matip all featured for 45 minutes at Prenton Park.
