Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera may leave the United in other to look for greener pasture elsewhere as his club has failed so far to offer him an agreeable new contract.

The Spaniard is disgruntled over the lack of urgency surrounding his expiring contract as his contract runs at the end of the season.

Club manager, Jose Mourinho is willing to see his player remain with the club but he doesn’t have a hand in a square deal to contract negotiations.

If peradventure his contract situation proves abortive then Chelsea should quickly grab the 29-year-old in a way of keeping him in England.

Mateo Kovacic moved on loan to Chelsea from Real Madrid but it appears that the Croatian may still have an eye in returning to his main club. If the Blues fail to permanent his deal, then it would be an enormous loss if both players escape the Bridge.

Herrera may not be as creative as the Croatian but his vigour, adroit experience in the English league will help him stamp his name in Sarri’s first XI. The Spanish player is good in front of goal and he always finds himself in the right position.

He single-handedly man-marked Eden Hazard in a game that saw Mourinho dominated Chelsea two season’s ago: this shows that he pays adequate attention to microscopic details.

If the United think they have many options in the midfield then Chelsea who may lose Kovacic should rather go for Herrera when his contract expires.
