Ander Herrera relishing Paris project

Midfielder Ander Herrera is delighted to have joined Paris Saint-Germain but delivered a parting shot at former club Manchester United.

The Spaniard made the move to Paris as a free agent and was officially unveiled as a PSG player last week when his United deal expired.

Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been keen to keep hold of the 29-year-old and Herrera has indicated he would have stuck with the Premier League club if they had attempted to tie him down to a new deal sooner.

“I do not like looking at the past very much, but there were differences regarding the project and my importance within it,” he told Marca.

“I was very happy, I have a lot to thank the club and the fans for it and also to Solskjaer. He did a lot for me to stay, but things did not happen, they (United) arrived late, and by then I had already made the decision to play in Paris.

“Today I am very happy to have made that decision because I am enjoying this magnificent city, of this beautiful stadium and this club.”

PSG are 1.13 to win Ligue 1 next season but their number one priority will be making a mark in Europe after being knocked out in the last 16 last season.

PSG are 10.00 to win the Champions League outright next season, while Premier League outfit Manchester City are the current 5.00 favourites.
