Manchester United’s star Spanish Midfielder Ander Herrera is set to be offered a new contract by the club worth £41.6m over four years according to Daily Star. Herrera who has become Mourinho’s go to man in big games had excelled in a deeper midfield role for United last year. He was instrumental in Manchester United’s Europa League victory and although Mourinho has said that there is no Vice Captain appointed, it is clear that Herrera will be wearing the armband more often than not.
Herrera at times can lose his cool but at 27 has experience and his best years ahead of him. This summer, there had been speculation that Barcelona might come for the Spaniard especially as their new coach Ernesto Valverde has already worked with Herrera. The massive contract offer clearly shows how important the Basque midfielder has become to Mourinho’s plans. In addition to his improving performances on the pitch, Herrera is a clear fan favourite and his popularity will only rise this season. If Mourinho manages to sign one more midfielder, then United’s center midfield problems will finally be solved after years of neglect.
