Ander Herrera: Why Ander Herrera is leaving Manchester United as the midfielder is leaving for PSG at the end of the season.
Manchester Evening News’ chief writer for Manchester United, Samuel Luckhurst claimed that the Red Devils offered Ander Herrera a significant wage hike but feeling from his side was they lacked the human touch.
Thus, according to the journalist, this is the probable reason for the player’s departure even after a significant pay-rise offer by the club.
It is reported that Manchester United were able to trigger the one-year extension clause but the player was not ready to stay. Although, Ole Solskjaer tried to convince the player but their attempts didn’t work out.
Here’s the claim by Samuel Luckhurst
United offered Herrera a significant wage hike but feeling from his side was they lacked the human touch. That said, it rarely reflects well when a player joins such a hollow club like the Qatari-owned PSG. But they’re in the Champions League and United aren’t. Nuances aplenty.

The Spanish midfielder joined the club in 2014 and has been a crucial player for Manchester United since then.
Five years later, the Spanish International is set to leave the club for PSG on a free transfer, despite, Manchester United’s several attempts to negotiate for wages.
However, it is a shocking accusation on Herrera, who was always admired by the fans and played crucial roles in winning the FA Cup, Europa league and the League cup.
Manchester United released an emotional video of Ander Herrera bidding an adieu to the fans as the Red Devils have confirmed his departure. In response, fans around the world poured in their messages in tribute for the ex-Red Devil.
