Ander Herrera opens up to Man United fans about his future
Ander Herrera insists that he has no plans to quit Manchester United despite recent reports linking him with Barcelona
Ander Herrera has insisted that he is happy at Manchester United and has no plans to quit the Old Trafford club.
The Spanish midfielder has developed into a key player at Old Trafford in recent seasons following his arrival at the English club from Athletic Bilbao in 2014.
Herrera was a key player in the Manchester United side last season under Jose Mourinho following the Portuguese coach’s appointment at the club in May 2016.
The Spaniard helped the Red Devils secure a return to the Champions League as he was named man of the match in the Europa League final win over Ajax in Stockholm last week.
Herrera has been touted as a possible transfer target for Barcelona in recent days.
However, the midfielder has insisted that he is happy at the Premier League club.
Herrera told Sky Sports: “I’m very thankful with Manchester United because they came to Spain to sign me three years ago.
“The only thing I have in my mind every time I’m on the pitch is that I want to give all the affection back.
“I think that’s the right way, I try to go to the pitch and to finish the game and I cannot complain to myself. I can say I have given everything, I don’t want to stop, I am very optimistic and hard working player.
“I want to keep playing, keep working hard, keep improving, not only personally but also with the club and the team, I want to keep improving to continue winning things.
“Of course I’m happy with my development and I am happy with my time at the club so far but I’m not going to stop here.
“I want to keep playing, keep improving, keep making our fans proud.”
Manchester United are likely to want to bolster their squad in the summer transfer window as they prepare for a return to the Champions league next season.
