Bad news as Manchester United’s 28-year-old midfielder may not renew contract: report


Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera admits he may not renew his contract at the end of the season. The Spanish international said in an interview with Mundo Deportivo that he may not extend his contract past next summer, opening the door to an Old Trafford exit.

The 28-year-old joined United from Spanish La Liga side Athletic Bilbao in 2014 and has gone on to make 154 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 40 goals. Herrera has been short of playing time this season, however, making only nine Premier League starts and his future is up in the air as a result.

Italian Serie A side AC Milan have been closely linked with his signature and midfielder said he plans to see out the last 18 months of his deal at United but may not extend his deal beyond 2019. With Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay ahead of the 28-year-old in the pecking order, the Spaniard might feel his future lies elsewhere.

“I am going to fulfil the year that I have left, but I do not know if I will renew. We have started talking but nothing has been decided yet,” Herrera revealed. Manager Jose Mourinho might have to consider cashing in on the midfielder rather than risk losing him for free next summer, which means interest could arise in the near future.
