Herrera hits out at Manchester United after completing PSG move

Former Manchester United star Ander Herrera has hit out at Manchester United board after alleged failed contract negotiations forced him out of Old Trafford. 

The Spanish was a key member of the first team in his stay at the club but left on a free transfer after his camp failed to agree on fresh terms with the club. 

He now claims that the club board failed to convince him of his "importance within the squad" leading him to look for a fresh challenge elsewhere. 

"I don’t like looking at the past but there were differences regarding the project and my importance within it," he told Marca.

"I was very happy, I have a lot to thank the club for, the fans and also Solskjaer. He did a lot for me to stay, but things didn’t happen. They arrived late and, by then, I’d already made the decision to play in Paris," he added. 

Herrera made 189 appearances for United across all competitions and managed to score 20 goals during the time. He also left the club having won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Europa League.

It's understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to keep the former Athletic club midfielder, but his wage demands were deemed too high by the club.
