Ander Herrera admitted he has been working hard to keep David De Gea at Manchester United.

The Spanish midfielder has been heaping praise on the goalkeeper, who remains a longstanding target for Real Madrid.

“I wish I could play with him for a long time, for me he’s the best,” Herrera told Radio Marca.

“Never before has a goalkeeper at Manchester United been voted as the best player by the team and the fans, he’s managed it three years in a row.”

Well, never before have Manchester United needed their goalkeeper so much, Ander.

“He’s a phenomenon and has a great gift in his reflexes, I want him to continue as he can be a United legend if he wants to.

“His move to Madrid did not go through and he adapted very well to that situation, playing out of his skin. That says a lot about him.”
