Ander Herrera hopes to sign a new contract at Manchester United, describing the Red Devils as "the best team in the UK".

Herrera is into the last 12 months of his contract at Old Trafford but he wants to extend his stay beyond 2019, and the club is expected to draw up a new contract for the Spaniard in due course.

And Herrera indicated that he would sign a new deal without question.


“I’m happy in the club and I love the fans," he said, as quoted by

“I’m playing for the best team in the UK, so my first intention is to stay because I love what I do and I love where I am.”

Herrera is one of only two men to win United's player of the season award in the past five years, winning the award for the 2016/17 campaign. David De Gea has won the prize in each of the other four seasons.

United finished second in the league last year, their highest finish since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, but they did not manage to win a trophy.

Herrera vowed that United would not be so complacent in the upcoming campaign.

“We have to be at least as good as we were last season in the league, but try to make less mistakes," he said. “Some league games, they’re fights and they’re wars. We have to be ready for it. We were for most of the games, but we made a couple of mistakes that we need to fix."

Herrera set up United's first goal of pre-season as he hit the post before Juan Mata netted an equaliser in United's draw against Club America this week.
