Man United 29-year-old star considering January exit Old Trafford

Ander Herrera is reportedly considering quitting Manchester United midway through the season after growing frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities.

The Spanish midfielder is due to be out of contract at Old Trafford next summer and is therefore free to discuss terms with foreign clubs from January.

According to Metro, a new deal from United has not been forthcoming and Herrera is now weighing up all of his options.

Herrera, a part of the Red Devils’ squad since 2014, has been given a combined 69 minutes of playing time during the 2018-19 campaign.

Former club Athletic Bilbao were linked with a reunion earlier this year, four years after selling the 29-year-old for £29m.

Meanwhile, Man United do not want to sack Jose Mourinho, but reportedly see Zinedine Zidane as their first-choice replacement.

Mourinho is under increasing pressure at United after two defeats in four matches. United have six points and currently sit on 10th position in EPL table.

With the transfer window now closed, the Mirror claim United have no plans to axe Mourinho and want him to demonstrate his pedigree with his current squad. But, ex-Real boss Zidane is United’s first choice should the situation with Mourinho continue to deteriorate.
