Manchester United are looking forward to making their team even stronger in the new season as they look forward to getting their act right and make it a point to end at the top of the league table this season. They have already brought in a number of top class players into the side, willing to revamp the team so that they can take on the might of the other biggies of the Premier League as well as European leagues, including names like Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, and Nemanja Matic.
Matic, who was brought in from Chelsea, has already started showing his class and has come up as the mainstay in the midfield, marshalling it alongside Paul Pogba. However, in their last match against Stoke City, he got a new partner by his side in the form of Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera, who started for United, having been benched since the start of the season.
The 28-year-old acted as the perfect enforcer with his composed playing style and his ability to pass the ball to the right player at the right time so as to cement a place in the first team, since his arrival at the club but has fallen down the pecking order this season.
In the last term, he showed his mettle as the life line of the team and went on to play a very important role in an injury plagued season for the Red Devils, marshalling their midfield in the best possible way and leading them to triumph in the UEFA Europa League.
Now that the Serbian midfielder is here, there might be an air of scepticism in the mind of the Spaniard regarding his playing time, with the man in charge of the side, Jose Mourinho, pairing the ex-Chelsea enforcer with Paul Pogba so as to give his midfield a refashioning.
However, the Spanish midfielder has been a fighter throughout his tenure at Old Trafford and seems ready to accept the challenge of having one of the best midfielders in Europe as his competition on the Manchester United team list.
Reportedly, the player is looking to start talks about signing a new contract with the Red Devils, with his current contract expiring at the end of the season. Though he has a number of offers at his disposal from a number of clubs from all over Europe, with the first name being that of the former Spanish champions Barcelona, Herrera is looking forward to making his mark in the Manchester United side and hoping stay put at Old Trafford for some more seasons.
Do you think he will play a big role for United this season as well?
