I wanted to stay at Manchester United, reveals Herrera

Ander Herrera says he wanted to remain at Manchester United before he switched to French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain. 

Herrera signed for PSG last summer on a free transfer after failing to agree a new deal at Old Trafford. Speaking to ESPN, the midfielder revealed he was keen to remain at United, citing a disagreement with the club officials as to the reason for his exit. 

"When I look back a year ago, my intention was not to leave Manchester United. I had some different opinions with the board but I respect them. I respect them a lot," he said. 

"They do things for Manchester United and I disagree with the people who say they don't. They really suffer when things don't go well and they really fight to bring Manchester United back."

"I disagreed with some of the decisions they made but this happens in football. In happens in every company. Apart from that, I respect them. I had a great relationship with Ed Woodward and with the owners when they came so I have nothing to complain about with them."

The 30-year-old made just eight starts and six substitute outings during his first season with PSG.
