Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that he wants to stay at Old Trafford for many years to come, reports the Daily Express.
The Spaniard scored twice on Saturday as the Red Devils beat Aston Villa 3-1 to go third in the Premier League ahead of local rivals Manchester City. They are now eight points clear of fifth placed Liverpool, and look set to enjoy Champions League football next season.
Having only joined in the summer from Athletic Bilbao, the 25-year-old is already planning a long stay with the Mancunian side. A series of impressive performances recently have seen the central midfielder consolidate his place in the side after struggling to make an impact when he first arrived.
He said: “It’s my dream to be here for a long time because I am in the right team, in the right league and in the right country. I feel very happy and I want to stay at the club for many years to come.”
He added: “I feel I quickly adapted to this league and this country because I am so comfortable here. I think [we at] Manchester United are always helping each other to adapt and to feel like we’re at home. I feel really good at United and I hope to stay here for a long time.”
Next up for United is the local derby against City. A win over their fierce rivals and they could well finish above them for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
