Man Utd midfielder refuses to commit to signing new contract

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has refused to commit his future to the club beyond the end of his current contract, despite negotiations having started over a new deal.

Herrera moved to United in 2014, becoming one of the first signings of the Louis van Gaal era, making a £36 million move from Athletic Club Bilbao.

He had already made a name for himself at Old Trafford a few years before the club signing him, putting in a dynamic performance against the Red Devils in a Europa League tie at Old Trafford which ultimately put Sir Alex’s men out of the tournament.

Upon arriving at United, he quickly became a fan favourite, always speaking effusively about the club, with some fans even suggesting that he should have been given the captains armband following the departure of Wayne Rooney last summer.

However, speaking in an interview with Mundo Deportivo, the Spaniard has said he will remain at the club for at least one more year, but refused to commit his future to the club beyond the expiry of his contract:

“I am going to fulfil the year that I have left but I don’t know if I will renew. We have started talking, although nothing has been decided yet.”

The 28-year-old has been restricted to just nine starts in the Premier League this season due to injuries and the arrival of Nemanja Matic.
