With his contract running out at the end of the season, Ander Herrera has become the centre of attention at Manchester United, or, at least, his future has.
The Spaniard, who has been at Old Trafford since 2014 after his transfer from Athletic Club Bilbao, has yet to extend his stay with the Premier League side, which has caused rumours of a move to Paris Saint-Germain to spread, which he has yet to refute.
In fact, even when given the option to do so by El Periodico de Aragón, a daily newspaper based in Zaragoza, the Spain international still didn’t play down the story.
He said: “It’s logical when you have three months left on your contract and there’s an international break. I already knew something would come out. I take it normally. I’m focused on playing football and on the month and a half that’s left.
“I leave the rest to my agent, whether that is the possibility of renewing with United or talking with another club regarding my exit.”
Explaining he isn’t ‘driving himself crazy’ with what will happen in four months, Herrera is happy in Manchester, a club where he feels fans ‘love’ him and where he has been treated ‘phenomenally’.
All he wants now is to win against Watford next week.
As he puts it: “If things are deserved and you are an honest person and work hard, they will happen.”
Since joining Manchester United, Herrera has made 186 appearances in all competitions, scoring 20 goals and assisting teammates 27 times.
