Ander Herrera Wants to Extend His Stay at Manchester United



Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera, who has certainly been subject to transfer rumors this summer, has spoken out about his own club future. The Spaniard, who moved over from Athletico Bilbao in the summer of 2014, wants to extend his stay at Old Trafford and make 200 appearances, at the very least in a red shirt.

He has 161 right now as he enters the final year of his current deal. Herrera won the club’s player of the year award for 2016-17, but last year found himself in a very crowded and competitive midfield where minutes are not guaranteed for anybody.


Nevertheless, Herrera is absolutely loving life at Old Trafford right now and he wants to keep it going long term.

“All the memories I have are amazing. I’ve been able to win trophies for the club. I have been able to play more than 160 games right now, so what I have in my mind is to go for the 200 games and keep adding games for the club and for myself,” Herrera said  to club publication Inside United.

Herrera, 29, reportedly makes three million Euros a year, and given his age the next contract he signs will probably be his final big money deal. He obviously wants that contract to be with United.

“The way the club treats me is perfect,” he added.


“The love the fans show for me couldn’t be better or bigger, my family is happy in Manchester, so I will just try to give everything and use all my strength and effort to keep deserving to play for this club.”
