Ander Herrera has revealed that he would like to move to Argentina once he leaves Manchester United.
Spanish midfielder Herrera, who started his career at Real Zaragoza, has endeared himself to Man United supporters during his time at Old Trafford with a string of fine displays.
Herrera insisted he if “focused” on United but admitted that he has given thought to the idea of moving to Argentina, or back to Zaragoza, when his career in Manchester comes to an end.
“Yes, I love Boca (Juniors). Since childhood, when my father (Pedro, technical director at Zaragoza) brought players from there. If one day I get the chance to play in South America, I’d love to go to Boca, the biggest,” Herrera said.
“But it is an idea, eh? I’m focused on my team. Ah, and with Marcos Rojo I have sometimes seen sometimes Estudiantes, which is his club.”
On Zaragoza, he added: “I see myself playing there again, but not when physically worn. I will return to contribute, not drag back.”
Supporters will be hoping that Herrera does not leave United anytime soon as he has proven to be one of the side’s more creative players this term.
The Spaniard has been in and out of the team in recent weeks but he is a crucial part of the squad. It remains to be seen whether he will line up against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
