Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has confirmed his expected departure from the club.
The 29-year-old’s deal expires at the end of the season and he is believed to have committed to Paris St Germain over another option.
There had been no official word until Saturday, though, when Herrara posted a goodbye to United’s fans via the club’s official Twitter account.

“There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment I started to wear it,” Herrera said.
“A club with thousands of fans who 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 every game, 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 have played with this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England, has been a true honour. Thanks for these five amazing years.”
In response to the goodbye video, Herrera tweeted: “I could never express enough gratitude.”
Cadena Ser reported earlier this week that Herrera had agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain after the Ligue 1 champions reportedly offered him a five-year contract.
