be eyeing a new contract in the near future.
The 29-year-old has been at United since
July 2014 when he signed from Athletic Bilbao and has since racked up 161

The Spaniard's current contract will expire

the end of the 2017/18 campaign, but Herrera appears to be keen on a longer
"I have been able to play more than
160 games right now, so what I have in my mind is to go for the 200 games and
keep adding games for the club and for myself," he told Inside United.
"The way the club treats me is
perfect. The love the fans show for me couldn't be better or bigger, my family
is happy in Manchester, so I will just try to give everything and use all my
strength and effort to keep deserving to play for this club."
He added: "First of all, I am very
proud because when you play for Manchester United you have to deserve every
season to keep playing for the club.
"I think the manager is very happy
with me and the fans are very happy with me. That makes me really proud."
After starting the Premier League season with a victory over Leicester City, United are back in action on Sunday, August 20 against Brighton at the The American Express Community Stadium.
Kick-off is at 17:00 (SA time).
