Ander Herrera Says He and Manchester United ‘are not thinking alike’



Given what Ander Herrera had to say ahead of the big UEFA Champions League clash versus Barcelona tomorrow night, it seems like his career at Old Trafford is coming to an end. The Spanish midfielder has said that he is keeping every door open, at this time, but he admitted that he and his current club are just not on the same page.

Herrera’s admission that no progress has been made in contract talks, with just two months left on his current deal, has given a major boost to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Barcelona and every other team that has been linked to the 29-year-old in transfer rumors this spring.


There has already been one prominent report claiming a pre-contract deal has been reached with PSG, and that the Ligue 1 side, in not having to pay a transfer fee, would be willing to pay him the £200,000 a week that he desires.

“What I want is to beat Barcelona and think about football,” the 2016-17 United Player of the year said in an interview with Diario ABC.

“It’s true that I only have two months left on my contract and as it is right now Manchester and I are not thinking alike and there is no renewal agreement, but my duty is still to continue to listen to United.”

“What it’s clear to me is that I will continue playing for a big team.”

“I take care of myself for that reason, I feel well and I want to continue in football for as long as my body allows me to because the day I retire I will begin to regret to have hung up my boots. I will listen to United, of course, but also to other clubs. I don’t close any doors.”
