Ander Herrera is frustrated at his lack of playing time at Manchester United and is demanding to hold talks with manager Louis van Gaal regarding his future, according to reports from the Daily Star.
Herrera was one of Louis van Gaal’s first signings at Old Trafford, arriving in the summer of 2014 for £29million from Athletic Bilbao with the reputation of being one of the best creative midfielders in the game.
However, the Spaniard has struggled to play on a consistent basis despite several impressive performances, and has become disillusioned at the club.
The 25-year-old has only made 32 appearances for the Red Devils and is now hoping to hold talks with Van Gaal to discuss the problem, with leaving a possibility as he aims to make the Spain squad for Euro 2016.
A source said: “Ander is worried about his lack of progress at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal.
“He feels like he’s lost his identity as a player and doesn’t know what his role is anymore.
“His situation appears to be getting worse and he’s worried his career is going backwards, so there will have to be a chat with the manager.”
Man United have been consistently near the top of the table this season, but have regularly been criticized for their boring style of football and tactics.
