Manchester United fans react as Ander Herrera explains departure

Having joined from Spanish side Athletic Bilbao in the summer of 2014, Ander Herrera endured a rather inconsistent career at Manchester United.

The all-action midfielder featured heavily in the early years of his time at Old Trafford, but began to see his first-team opportunities at the club become more and more limited, playing just 22 out of 38 league games last season.

After letting his contract expire this summer, it was confirmed that Herrera had joined French giants PSG on a free transfer. Now, speaking to Marca, the Spanish international has revealed that differences in opinion over his importance in United’s future plans saw him make the decision to leave Old Trafford.

After hearing the 29-year-old’s comments on his United exit, fans of the Manchester side took to Twitter to voice their opinion and many were seemingly divided about the issue.

Some seemed to take Herrera’s comments with a pinch of salt and instead suggested that the Spaniard’s reported wage demands were the main reason behind him choosing to join the cash-rich French side.

Others however seemed to be on the midfielder’s side and empathised with his comments that United’s offer had “arrived late” and felt it was a massive symbol of the current plight at Old Trafford.

Check out some of the mixed reaction of United fans below:
