Manchester United fans may have to bid farewell to many of their favorites at the end of this season.
While the emotional values attached to these players is due to the time they’ve spent at the club, the fact that they no longer contribute well to the roster and the side’s evolving style suggest that departing would be the more pragmatic route to take.
In particular, the club’s beloved Spanish trio of David De Gea, Ander Herrera, and Juan Mata all face uncertainty about their future. The goalkeeper has been in some of the poorest form of his career and interest from PSG and Real Madrid has stolen the limelight since his contract expires next summer.
As for Mata and Herrera, their fate is pending this summer itself and it seems like a foregone conclusion that they’ll not remain at Old Trafford. Interestingly, one of them has been offered a tempting contract by PSG.
Spanish outlet AS suggests that Herrera has agreed to a four-year deal with the French giants, which would see him make €32 million, pegging his weekly wages at around €154,000 before taxes.
The deal between Ligue 1 leaders and Ander Herrera is already in place and an announcement is imminent.
It is also understood that Herrera will function as the primary replacement for Adrien Rabiot at Paris, with the French midfielder slated for a summer departure.
Many at Old Trafford will be disheartened at these claims as Herrera is one of the most experienced and well-liked players at the Mancunian outfit.
