Manchester United confirmed Herrera would be leaving the club after five years at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Spain international has penned an emotional goodbye to supporters ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League showdown with Cardiff.
Many feel Herrera is leaving Manchester United because of the club’s reluctance to bow to his wage demands.
The 29-year-old has been wanting a salary of £250,000-a-week to stay but, because of his age, the Red Devils have flatly refused to dance to his tune.
Herrera is now expected to join PSG on a free transfer, with the Ligue 1 giants preparing for an overhaul of their own.
But the Daily Star claim Herrera is leaving United because he’s realised they are not the competitive force they used to be.
The Red Devils signed the Spain international from Athletic Bilbao in 2014 at a time where they were rebuilding under Louis van Gaal.
Yet Herrera has never been part of an especially good United side throughout his time there.
Jose Mourinho failed in his attempts to steer the club back to the top of the English game.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now faces a massive fight to turn things around.
The Daily Star add that Herrera decided to leave United in the aftermath of their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Bruno Fernandes, of Sporting Lisbon, and Declan Rice have been tipped to move to Old Trafford as his replacement.
Herrera, meanwhile, has penned an emotional goodbye to United fans, saying: “There is red in my heart.
“I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment I started to wear it.
“A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything.
“I felt special when I heard my name chanted.
“I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of the club’s history.
“Every time I represented this club, in every game, when when I couldn’t help from the grass, I understood what this club means.
“I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey.
“Because playing for the greatest club in England has been a huge honour.
“Thanks for these amazing five years.”
