Ander Herrera will sign a new four-year contract with Manchester United worth of £41.6 million, which will make him one of the highest paid players at the club.
Barcelona are tracking the Spanish midfielder for weeks now, but they never made an official approach for the former Athletic Bilbao man. With the fresh contract on the horizon, Barcelona’s chances of getting Herrera are very slim. The 27-year-old said that he is very happy at Manchester United.
“There’s no truth to Barcelona because I’m very happy at United. I also feel valued by United and I’m focused on them,” Ander said after the Red Devils’ 5-2 win over LA Galaxy at the International Champions Cup in the United States.
“Real Madrid in the European Super Cup? are the strongest team right now, they’ve won the last two Champions Leagues, but a Super Cup Final always motivates you,” Herrera continued. “I’ll be just as motivated. Of course, playing against Madrid is a good test for us. Getting back into the Champions League was crucial for the club, we’ll be one of the teams to beat. We’re a strong team with a winning Coach. “Morata? Of course, I began to see Morata as a teammate, it was very close because the two clubs were in talks. Too bad he’s not with us, but I wish him well,” the Spaniard concluded.
Jose Mourinho is on a lookout for a holding midfielder and letting Herrera go at this moment would be utterly surprising, so he’s expected to stay at Old Trafford for the time being.
