Herrera says goodbye
Ander Herrera joined Manchester United in July of 2014 from Athletic Bilbao.
Since then the Spaniard has gone on to make over 180 appearances for the Red Devils.
In those games, he has scored 20 and assisted 27
Herrera has also helped United win the Europa League, League Cup, FA Cup and Community Shield.
Now though, with the midfielders current contract set to expire in July, Herrera has sent a heartfelt goodbye message to the Man United fans:
“A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything.
“I felt special when I heard my name chanted, I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history.
“Every time I represented this club 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 played in this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England has been a true honour. Thanks for these five amazing years.”As quoted by the Mirror.

Herrera to feature vs Cardiff?
Numerous outfits in England including the Star have reported that Herrera will be joining PSG this summer with a contract worth around £25m.
Herrera came off the bench for 37 minutes in United’s 1-1 draw vs Huddersfield at Old Trafford.
But Man United’s final game of the season will be at Cardiff, so Herrera is unlikely to be getting a big send off.
It is still unknown if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start Herrera in what would be his final ever game for United.
Here is some Man United fan reaction to Herrera’s departure.
Wait no stop this I don’t want to cry
