Manchester United have officially confirmed the departure of midfielder Ander Hererra from the club via a farewell video on it’s Twitter handle.
The Spanish international joined the Red Devils from Atletic Bilbao back in 2014 and has since gone on to make 189 appearances for the club.
— UEFA Europa League (@EuropaLeague) May 19, 2017
He won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the season award for the 2016-17 campaign to go along with an FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.
Hererra again has been an integral part of United’s midfield this season making 28 appearances with his future in doubt for several months.
Though there is no official word yet, it is believed the Spaniard is set to move to Paris Saint Germain after having agreed to a four year with the Ligue 1 champs.
His departure is a significant blow for the Red Devils as his desire, energy and tenacity is unmatchable.
So, The United fans are distraught for good reason as they took to social media vent their frustration on the club.
Ed Woodward, Look away!

So we give new contracts to Young, Jones and Smalling, keep Sanchez who’s always either injured or just shit and give him 500k a week plus bonuses just for playing. The whole club is a disgrace

Smalling, Jones, Young and Rojo (last year) all got long contract extensions but Herrera doesn’t?? Club is going backwards 😭😭

That’s it lads, keep paying Alexis £500K a week and let one of our best midfielders leave for free. Great work.

Can’t believe we’re letting him go. The one player who fought for the badge constantly. Once a Red always a Red, we love you Ander!
