11 May 2019

Ander Herrera has confirmed that he will be leaving Manchester United at the end of this 2018-2019 season.

The 29-year-old, who joined the club under Louis van Gaal from Athletic Bilbao in 2014, is understood to have agreed pre-contract terms with Paris Saint-Germain. 

The Spanish midfielder has been applauded by many fans across this season for his passion and work ethic, especially in UEFA Champions League fixtures.

In an official website statement, Herrera said, “This is not an easy day or an easy decision, but sometimes in life you have to take decisions. Sometimes the timing is just not right and you have to move on. I don’t want to be sad, I want to thank all the fans for all they have done for me in the last five years.”

Herrera continued, “I have enjoyed so much playing for this club, I have felt so privileged to represent this club every time I have done it. And when you’re a Manchester United player you will forever be a Manchester United player. It’s something special.”
