United activate Herrera option

Manchester United have exercised the option to extend Ander Herrera’s contract by one year until June 2019, according to reports.

The Spanish midfielder’s initial contract at Old Trafford was set to expire in 2018 but the Red Devils had inserted an option at extending this by an extra 12 months at their discretion.

According to Marca they have now triggered this for the former Athletic Bilbao midfielder which guarantees his short-term future at the club.

United are also said to hold a similar option for Juan Mata but not for Marouane Fellaini, who Jose Mourinho admitted could leave on a free transfer next summer.
