Ander Herrera: New contract in the pipeline?

Ander Herrera has said he would be “very happy” to open talks with Manchester United over a new deal, but he has had no contact so far.

The Spaniard is within the last 18 months of his current contract and Old Trafford and could speak to non-Premier League clubs from next January onward.

However, Herrera is keen to talk with Manchester United officials after emerging as an influential figure in midfield under Jose Mourinho.

“I have nothing to talk about,” said Herrera via Manchester Evening News. “Of course, if they want to talk with me, I will be very happy to do that. But so far, nothing.”

Herrera also discussed Manchester United’s end-of-season targets, and highlighted the importance of qualifying for the Champions League.

He added: “We have three competitions to play for and in the Premier League we have to finish in the top four.

“We will not be 100 per cent happy if we are fourth because we want to finish as high as possible, but minimum, we have to be in the top four and fight for the rest of the titles.”
