Ander Herrera, now of Paris Saint-Germain, says that only a disagreement with the Manchester United board led to his exit from Old Trafford.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that he initially wanted to remain at Manchester United.

After failing to agree fresh terms at Old Trafford, Herrera left for the Parc des Princes on a free transfer last summer.

However, the Spaniard has said that he did not want to move on from the Premier League giants, citing a disagreement with club officials as the reason for his departure.

Herrera told ESPN: "When I look back a year ago, my intention was not to leave Manchester United. I had some different opinions with the board but I respect them. I respect them a lot.

"They do things for Manchester United and I disagree with the people who say they don't. They really suffer when things don't go well and they really fight to bring Manchester United back.

"I disagreed with some of the decisions they made but this happens in football. In happens in every company. Apart from that, I respect them. I had a great relationship with Ed Woodward and with the owners when they came so I have nothing to complain about with them."

Herrera made just eight starts and six substitute outings during his first season with PSG.
