Herrera confirms United exit

LONDON, May 11, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Manchester United midfielder Ander
Herrera has revealed he will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season amid
reports of a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Herrera’s United contract expires at the end of the season and it is
believed he has lined up a deal with French champions PSG.

United hadn’t commented on Herrera’s future, but the 29-year-old
Spaniard posted a goodbye message to fans via the club’s Twitter account on
Saturday.

“There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here
and in the moment I started to wear it,” said Herrera, who has also been
linked with Arsenal, Juventus and Inter Milan.

“Every time I represented this club, in every game, in wins and losses,
even when I couldn’t help from the grass, I understood what this club means.

“I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have
played with this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England,
has been a true honour. Thanks for these five amazing years.”

Herrera, twice capped by Spain, joined United from Athletic Bilbao in
2014 and has gone on to make 189 appearances for the club, winning the FA
Cup, League Cup and Europa League during his time in England.
