Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has admitted he is unsure about his future at the club.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Manchester United before with former club Athletic Bilbao linked with a move for him in January.

How important is Herrera? Five things you need to know…

  1. Ander Herrera moved to Manchester United from Athletic Bilbao in 2014.
  2. The 29-year-old has made 186 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils, scoring 20 goals.
  3. The midfielder has won four titles in England: the Uefa Europa League, FA Cup, EFL Cup and the FA Community Shield.
  4. This season, Herrera has made 25 appearances this season, including scoring in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first game in charge.
  5. His contract runs out at the end of this season, and Herrera admits he in unsure about his future.

The Manchester United midfielder has been speaking to reporters about his future at Old Trafford, with United supporters keen to know whether Herrera will be prolonging his stay at the club beyond the end of this season.

Herrera admitted he is unsure whether his future remains on English soil, or at the very least with Manchester United.

He said: “It’s logical when you have three months left on your contract and it is the international break.

“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.

“The rest I leave to my agent, both a possible contract renewal with United and talks with another club about my departure.”

A difficult few weeks for United

Before United fans concern themselves with the future of their Spanish midfielder, the club have a few tough fixtures ahead of them as the season slowly draws to a close.

Their next two Premier League fixtures see United take on two sides who have impressed this campaign, with United hosting Watford before travelling to Wolverhampton Wanderers, the side who knocked them out of the FA Cup at the quarter-final stage.

After that, Herrera and company have a small matter of facing La Liga and European giants Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals first-leg, with the first match taking place at Old Trafford.

With United still trying to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League while attempting to go as far as possible in Europe, Herrera’s contractual discussions are understandably far from the top of the club’s agenda, for now.
