Manchester United’s summer signing Ander Herrera could see his time at Old Trafford cut short, with the player possibly departing in the winter transfer window, as reported by the Daily Express.
This will come as a huge shock, with Herrera having only joined the Old Trafford club in the summer.
The Red Devils paid a staggering £28.5 million to bring him in from Athletic Bilbao.
However, injuries and other signings have combined to limit his appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side.
Herrera has played five times in the league, and of those games, four came during the first six games of the season.
He has played just 45 minutes since the end of September, when he was replaced at half time during Man Utd’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.
Reports in Italy are now suggesting that Herrera could depart in January.
Van Gaal is reportedly keen to improve his midfield further and will sacrifice his summer signing to achieve that.
