Barragán (also Valencia) is wanted by Boro too. He is what we call, an essential middle class within a team. Not done yet.

The 29 year old has a lot to prove to Mourinho after being out of action due to injury last campaign, however as of now his future at the Old Trafford is uncertain. Valencia joined United in 2009 in a transfer move from Wigan Athletic in a £15m deal.
Along with Valencia Juan Mata’s stay at the Old Trafford this summer is not sure as there is a possibility that Jose Mourinho would prefer to sell the player from the Old Trafford as he was the one to sell Mata to the Old Trafford at the first place during his time at Chelsea.
