£75,000-a-week player wants to agree Man Utd deal


Manchester United signed Spanish international Ander Herrera when Dutch boss Louis van Gaal was in charge of the club.

Now, under Jose Mourinho, the former Atheltic Bilbao star finds himself in a complex situation.

According to Metro.co.uk, the 29-year-old star has made it clear that he wants to agree a new deal and stay with Manchester United.

However, the issue is that the club have not offered him a new contract as yet and that is why he will listen to offers in the January transfer window.

Herrera’s current deal with the Red Devils will expire next year and if United do not sign an extension then he will have the option to sign a pre-contract agreement (in January) with any other club to leave Old Trafford for free (next summer).

Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, he has lured midfielders like Pogba (2016), Matic (2017) and Fred (2018).

Herera has only gone down the pecking order and in all fairness, he should leave United for regular first team football.

The £75,000-a-week midfielder (The Express) could only start 13 times in the league last season and this time around, so far, he has only started once in four PL fixtures. It should be noted that the versatile center midfielder started as a center back vs Spurs.

In your opinion, should United hold on to Ander Herrera?


  1. I think it would be sad if Herrera leave as he has been a true professional and plays for the badge. I would retain him as UTD are competing on many fronts and so a deep squad is required. That’s my I would offer him another contract. The same applies to Mata. Both players are fantastic people as well as players.

  2. I like Herrera. Not sure if he is good enough to play at the very top level, but he is passionate about the club and gives his best. If only Pogba and Martial has this spirit.
    If he leaves, will wish him all the best. Will be a loss for MU, but if a better player comes in as a result, it would be a good outcome.

  3. Love Herrera, reliable midfield squad player. Love Mata too but only as a 10 in lieu of Pogba, not out wide or anywhere else in midfield as my 10 year old daughter tackles more.

    If Pogba is pissing about, I’d play either instead until Pogba sorts his head out or we get silly money for him.
