Ander Herrera has confirmed that he will leave Manchester United at the end of this season after five years at Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old whose contract with the Red Devils expires at the end of the season and would become a free agent has been linked with a move to French champions, Paris Saint-Germain.

Herrera, who has won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League at United, is yet to announce where he'd play next season but did take time to bid farewell to his club.

In a farewell video released by the club, Herrera said: "There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment that I started to wear it.

"A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything.

"I felt special when I heard my name changed. I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history.

"Every time I represented this club, in every game, in wins and loses, even when I couldn't help from the grass, I understood what this club means.

"I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England has been a true honor.

"Thanks for these five amazing years."

The former Athletico Bilbao man, who joined United from the Basque club in 2014, has started 16 times in 22 appearances this season. He has played 189 times for the Manchester club, scoring 20 goals.
