Manchester United finished 6th in the Barclays Premier League last season and Ander Herrera was voted as the team’s Player of the Year.
The Spanish international was impressive in the last campaign but this season, he has mostly warmed the bench because Mourinho has preferred the likes of Pogba and Matic in his midfield.
The Portuguese boss still thinks that the former Athletic Bilbao star is an important member and therefore, as per an exclusive report covered by Marca, United have moved to agree a contract extension with him to ward off interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.
A similar kind of news was reported by Daily Mail last month as well but we still have not got any confirmation from the Old Trafford club.
After the extension, Herrera’s deal with United will expire in 2019 and at the moment, he is earning (Star) around £100,000-a-week ($135,000-a-week).
In the current campaign, Herrera has featured in 18 games so far and provided only one assist. In your opinion, does he deserve a contract extension?
