Real Reason Herrera Did Not Play Against Barca Revealed?

With Ander Herrera not featuring in the first leg of Manchester United's UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie against FC Barcelona on Wednesday, could it be that he was left out following his recent comments about his future?

The Spaniard was not named in United's squad to face the Catalan giants, who, thanks to an own goal by Luke Shaw, won 1-0 at Old Trafford.

In a recent interview, Herrera, whose current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, openly admitted that he and the club are not on the same wavelength in terms of a contract extension, and also revealed he will be listening to offers from other clubs.

While it was initially thought he was unavailable for the Barca clash due to an injury, The Telegraph and le10Sport have claimed the former Athletic Bilbao man could be off to Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports suggest that the 29-year-old could be handed a contract in excess of £200 000 (R3.6 billion) a week at PSG, wages United are believed to be unwilling to match.
