Ander Herrera calls potential PSG move ‘logical’ as with deal set to expire

Ander Herrera concedes his Manchester United future is up in the air with Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal interested in getting him on a free transfer this summer.

Herrera will be out of contract at the club in June and negotiations that started 18 months ago have reached deadlock.

United are still hopeful of persuading him to sign a new contract and it’s believed the 29-year-old Spaniard would prefer to stay.

But Herrera is unhappy the club have allowed talks to drag as the clock runs down after offering him little more than some of the junior first-team players at United.

It’s believed he is looking for a significant increase on his current £80,000-a-week deal to around £150,000 having re-established himself as a regular under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but United insist the deal must be fair to both sides.

The former Athletic Bilbao man has been able to speak to foreign clubs since January 1, allowing PSG to open talks over a lucrative transfer to France.

Sportsmail reports that Arsenal have also registered an interest in Herrera if he decides to leave United at the end of the campaign after five years at the club.

‘I do not concern myself with what will happen in four months, so I do not know if my time here is over,’ said Herrera in response to speculation over his future.

‘It’s logical when you’ve got three months left on your contact and there is an international break. I knew something would come out.

‘I take it as normal. I focus on playing football in the month-and-a-half that remains (of the season). The rest is left to my agent, both the possible renewal with United and any talks with another club for my departure.

‘I enjoy playing for the biggest club in England. The fans love me, they have treated me phenomenally and my duty is to listen to them – although I honestly do not know what is going to happen.

‘What I see myself is trying to win at Watford next week. If you deserve rewards and if you are an honest and hard-working person, they arrive.’

Juan Mata is in a similar situation at Manchester United as talks continue over renewing a deal that also expires in the summer.
