After confirming his intention to leave Manchester United on a free transfer, Ander Herrera finally made his next career decision known…

Paris Saint-Germain confirmed a move to sign the 29-year-old yesterday evening, with the Basque switching Manchester for the French capital.

Herrera was always seen as a cult hero by most of the Old Trafford faithful. The midfielder was viewed as someone who understood what it meant to play for this club. Recently, that has turned into somewhat of a rare commodity.

Despite all his talents and obvious ability, Herrera often found himself in and out of the United team under the three managers he played for. After being locked in contract talks for a fair while, the player decided to walk away in search of a new challenge.

My personal opinion on the situation is that he’s ambitious and wants to win trophies. United cannot offer him that at this point, PSG can. The Reds were also unwilling to give into Herrera’s wage demands. PSG have offered him a five-year deal on mega-money and it seems as though United are finally going to stop caving in and giving players whatever they want.

They’ve made their bed with Alexis Sanchez’s wage, but unless they stop throwing away money like it’s going out of fashion, United would never get out of the vicious cycle. Sure, I would have preferred the club to make someone other than Herrera the scapegoat, but that’s just the situation, unfortunately…

Anyway, the United fans have been taking to social media in their droves, and it’s fair to say they’re divided on Herrera. Some believe it was a mistake to let him leave, while others feel as though it was the correct decision. See our favourite responses below:

Meanwhile, some fans weren’t too fussed about him leaving…
