Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has confirmed that he will leave the club at the end of the season.
Herrera’s contract runs down in the summer and United have not offered him an extension.
Ander Herrera to leave at the end of the season
As a result, the Spaniard is expected to join Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he has already negotiated personal terms.
Herrera confirmed the development in a post on social media. Whilst explaining his decision, he also thanked the fans and the club for the support they have shown him.
“Thanks for these amazing years”
“There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment that I started to wear it.
“A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything.
“I felt special when I heard my name chanted. I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history.
“I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey because playing for the greatest club in England has been a true honour.
“Thanks for these five amazing years.”
Herrera joined United from Athletic Bilbao back in 2014. He has since gone on to make close to 200 appearances for the Red Devils.
His effervescent displays have endeared him to the Old Trafford faithful, who will hate to see the back of him at the end of the season.
Herrera’s stint at the club has been a relatively successful one. He has lifted the Carabao Cup, Europa League and FA Cup, but failed to capture the grand prize – the Premier League trophy.
His current campaign has been marred by injury. Herrera has featured in just 22 league matches, scoring two goals and providing three assists.
With a major summer overhaul expected, it remains to be seen who United sign to replace Herrera.
