We’re at the time of the season where squad evaluation takes place.
As well as deciding which areas of the side require strengthening, decisions are made as to which players are if their current deals are coming to an end, to be offered new deals.
One such player who fits into that category, at Old Trafford, is Ander Herrera.
The 29-year-old Spaniard, who I’ve previously described as one of those players that always give a seven out of ten performance, is on a deal that expires at the end of the season.
According to the new source, the Telegraph, Herrera is keen to agree on a deal with the club that would extend his stay at Old Trafford.
However, another news source, the tabloid publication, the Mirror, is reporting that discussions have come to an abrupt halt with Manchester United unwilling to meet the salary demands the Spanish midfielder wants.
If the stand-off is unable to be successfully resolved then there may well be a parting of the ways with the red-top publication, the Sun, inferring that the French side, Paris Saint-Germain have already made a move to acquire Herrera’s services.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we’d be sorry to see Herrera leave but, if the club are not willing to satisfy his salary demands then a move seems somewhat inevitable.
As is the norm, we’ll keep an eye out for any further developments and report back as deemed necessary.
