Yangel Herrera eyeing first-team spot at Manchester City

Yangel Herrera eyeing first-team spot at Manchester City

Yangel Herrera is always hopeful of getting a chance to show his worth at Manchester City.

The 23-year-old has been with the Premier League club since 2017, but has yet to make an appearance for them, having spent time on loan with New York City FC, Huesca, and Granada.

The Granada midfielder has been in excellent form this season, scoring eight goals and providing two assists in 41 appearances across all competitions.

Herrera's contract with Man City runs until June 2024, and the Venezuelan international is fighting for a starting spot with the Cityzens, who are said to be considering their options.

"I focus on the day-to-day. It's what has led me to where I am and that teams like that take me into account. Now I don't think about whether I'm going there or not. I try to do well in Granada and in the future, we will see if I can be there (Man City)," Herrera told El Estimulo.

"I work for [playing for a top European club]. I think it's my goal. My dream was to play for the national team and reach an elite club in Europe. I try to evolve and grow. I can be very close to achieving it."

In both legs of Granada's Europa League quarter-final against Manchester United, Herrera played the full 90 minutes.
