Juan Mata and Ander Herrera have established a firm bromance during their time together at Manchester United and they are continuing to enjoy each other’s company during the pre-season tour of the United States.
Mata initially struggled to make an impact under Louis van Gaal last season but he was superb during a six-game winning streak towards the end of the campaign which effectively secured a top four finish in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Herrera went from strength to strength in the second half of last season after a frustrating first few months at Old Trafford.
Both players will be key if United are to challenge on all fronts next term and it looks like their preparations are going well:

Herrera, in particular, has endeared himself to United fans following a string of fine performances last season.
The attitude of both players off the pitch is something to be admired and befitting of United players. Despite often finding themselves on the substitute’s bench, the duo kept their heads down, worked hard and eventually forced their way into van Gaal’s thinking.
