Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera is reportedly fearful about his Manchester United future beyond the current campaign. The 28-year-old is presently sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained during a Champions League game against Sevilla last month.
Herrera was one of United’s regulars during the previous season as he contributed towards the club’s League Cup and Europa League success under manager Jose Mourinho. However, he has not enjoyed a similar run this term owing to injuries and the loss of form, and he is now seemingly considering his long-term future.
According to El Gol Digital, the Basque player could consider a sensational return to Athletic Bilbao, should United pursue a new central midfielder during the summer. Should this not be the case, the Spain international could link up with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, who remain long-time admirers of his services.
Herrera has been restricted to just eight Premier League starts during the current season, and there are suggestions that his limited playing time may have something to do with an incident back in April 2017.
During that period, Herrera had invited a close friend with Celta Vigo links to the Carrington training base, and this did not go well with Mourinho, considering United were due to face the Spanish outfit in a Europa League semi-final clash, shortly after.
