Ander Herrera is unsure over his future at Manchester United and has described reports linking him with a move to Paris Saint-Germain as ‘logical’.
Herrera, 29, has only weeks remaining on his current deal at the club, with no contract agreement in place. The Spaniard will leave the club on a free this summer if a new deal can not be finalised.
The midfielder has been instrumental in United’s mid-season revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is focusing on a strong finish to the season with Champions League success and a top-four finish still to fight for.
“It’s logical when you have three months left on your contract and it is the international break,” Herrera told El Periodico, as per Sky Sports.
“I knew something would come out. I take it with a pinch of salt, I’m focusing on playing football in the remaining month and a half of the season.
“I’m not going crazy about what is going to happen over the next four months because I don’t know if my stay here is over.”
“I enjoy being at the biggest club in England, the fans love me, they have treated me phenomenally and I owe it to them to listen to what they say, but honestly I don’t know what is going to happen.
“All I see is trying to win against Watford next week. If you deserve things and if you are an honest and hardworking person, things happen,” Herrera added.
Herrera moved to Old Trafford from Athletico Bilbao in 2014, and the club should be reluctant to see the midfielder, who clearly loves the club as much as the fans love him, leave on a free transfer this summer.
If anything, it looks like he’s waiting for United to table an offer that meets his demands. I certainly don’t think he’s trying to engineer a move away from Old Trafford.
He’s nowhere near the best midfield we’ve seen in a United shirt, but there’s no denying his importance to the side, especially in the big games.
You get the feeling Solskjaer will want to keep him around beyond the end of this season.
