Ander Herrera has outlined his desire to reach the milestone of 200 games for Manchester United.

The Spanish midfielder didn’t feature in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Leicester City in their opening Premier League fixture on Friday night.

Herrera moved to Manchester United in a £29m deal from La Liga side Athletic Bilbao under Jose Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal.

The Spain international become a key lieutenant of Mourinho following the Portuguese head coach’s appointment at the start of the 2016-17 season.

Herrera won the Europa League and the League Cup in Mourinho’s first season having got his hands on the FA Cup in Van Gaal’s final campaign in charge.

His first-team opportunities were limited in the 2017-18 season following the arrival of Nemanja Matic in a £40m deal from Chelsea FC.

Herrera’s route to the first-team has been further congested by the addition of Brazil international Fred, who is set to partner Matic and Paul Pogba.

However, the Spanish star is determined to rack up 200 games for Manchester United to suggest his future remains at Old Trafford.

“All the memories I have are amazing,” Herrera told Man United’s website.

“I have 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 has scored 17 goals in 161 games over the past four seasons at Old Trafford.

The Manchester United star made his Spain debut in a 2-2 draw with England last season.
