Herrera: Man Utd Midfielder Confirms he Will Leave Club at The End of The Season
Ander Herrera will leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Herrera’s contract expires at the end of June and the 29-year-old is expected to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer this summer after agreeing terms with the Ligue 1 champions.
After arriving from Athletic Bilbao in 2014, he spent five seasons at Old Trafford, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League and won the club’s prestigious Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award in 2016/17.
United did attempt to keep Herrera but there was no agreement over terms.
Herrera confirmed his departure in a video released on United’s official Twitter account.

He said: “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.
“Every time I represented this club, in every game, in wins and losses, even when I couldn’t help from the grass, I understood what this club means.
“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.”
It is not known whether Herrera will play any part in Sunday’s final Premier League game against Cardiff at Old Trafford.
