However, the Men understands a decision has not been made on the futures of Cavani, 34 on Sunday, and Mata, who will turn 33 in April.
Cavani joined United on a free transfer on deadline day in October and has scored seven times, having ousted Anthony Martial to become United's first-choice striker. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken of his desire to keep Cavani at least until the end of next season.
"At the moment, it looks like he has a few years left in him," Solskjaer said on Boxing Day. "So I wouldn’t say anything else. He has made a great impact when he has come here. Let’s focus on improving everyone but he has a few years left in him."
Mata recently celebrated his seventh anniversary at United but has not been named in the last four matchday squads and he has not been pictured in training.

Attention turns to Solskjaer's press conference
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is due to face the press at 1.30pm to preview the West Bromwich Albion match on Sunday.
United will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League following their 3-3 draw against Everton last time out in the league.
Solskjaer’s side, who beat West Ham 1-0 in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, will be without midfielder Paul Pogba, who suffered a thigh injury against Everton.
Kounde would not come cheap
Manchester United might have to pay as much as £70million to sign Sevilla’s Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to Spanish newspaper AS, who report that Sevilla are not short of suitors for the exciting 22-year-old centre-back.
Marca say Real Madrid are interested, while Liverpool have previously been linked with the France under-21 international. Sevilla’s director of football, Monchi, also claimed the Spanish club turned down an offer from Manchester City for him last year.
The report states that Sevilla believe Kounde could net them their biggest ever transfer fee.
