Ander Herrera

, who is currently on loan at Athletic Bilbao, opened up about his “painful” departure from Manchester United in 2019.

While there were rumors back then that United were offering him a new deal, it is now revealed that their offer came too late. Herrera spoke to

Manchester United

’s media team recently, opening up about his exit.

“To leave, it was difficult because six months before, five months before, I was expecting that offer for me to stay. It's not the moment to talk bad about anyone and I am not going to do it.”

Herrera said.

"But after my third season with the club I expected a little bit more from the club at that time. I got the Player of the Year award by the fans and the club didn't call me that summer to sign a new contract, and they did with other players.

"That was painful for me, honestly. I think I deserved it and they didn't do it. After, the conditions changed because I was not happy with that little moment with the club. People go through the club but the club and the badge stay the same, so I could never say one bad word about the club because I am so, so thankful. But that was a little bit painful.

"At the end of the third season, three titles, Player of the Year, and they didn't call me in the summer so I was feeling a bit down. And after, they called me when I had one year left on the contract and the things, they were not right for me."

He concluded his thoughts by saying:

"I fight for the club until the last day, no problem at all, I respected my contract until the last day. But they didn't come at the right moment in my opinion, and in my agent's opinion, and in my family's opinion as well.”

Herrera played for the Red devils 189 times, winning the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League and the club's player of the year award in 2016/17, while he has won titles at PSG too.
