Manchester United set to hand 29-year-old midfielder with two-year contract

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is expected to commit his future to the club in the coming weeks with contract discussions planned during the international break next month.

Herrera has been with the Red Devils over the past four seasons but it has been under Jose Mourinho where he has managed to bring the best out of his abilities.

In a recent MUTV interview, Herrera confirmed that he would like to remain with United for the long-term and The Sun now reports that negotiations are likely to take place during the upcoming international break.

Herrera presently has just 11 months left on his existing contract with United but the contract planned is expected to extend his stay for the next couple of seasons at the least.

The Spaniard was voted the club’s Player of the Year during the 2016/17 season whereby United enjoyed success in both the League and the Europa League.

However, he has since dropped down the pecking order with Nemanja Matic being recruited and the competition has been further increased with the recent signing of Fred.

Based on this, Herrera is unlikely to command a regular starting role barring injuries but the Spaniard appears content to fight for his United future rather than pursuing regular gametime elsewhere.
