Manchester United v Huddersfield Town - Premier League
Manchester United have improved this season under Mourinho

Manchester United are having a massively improved season under Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils sit at the second spot in the Premier League table only behind local rivals, Manchester City.

At the beginning of the season, United was tipped to be the favourites to lift the title, a major reason for this optimism was the squad depth with players Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Phil Jones not expected to start games despite their qu

However, the squad players have brought much disappointment to Mourinho. Things haven't gone as planned for Jose when he has decided to rest his key players. United faced defeats against Basel and Bristol City when they rotated the squad substantially.

Herrera's work rate could impress Valverde.

The Spaniard would be entering the last 12 months of his deal in the summer. His contract runs down in 2019. Ander is yet to agree on a new deal at the club, as United have triggered an extension of one year in his existing contract.

The midfielder was in sublime form in Jose's first season in charge at United. He was expected to feature regularly in a three-man midfield for United after Matic's arrival. However, the 28-year-old lost his place in the starting XI.

Herrera was a subject of interest from FC Barcelona in 2017 but the Spaniard decided to commit to his current club. Reports also stated that Barca could sign the United man in January.

Jose has already called for reinforcements in the engine-room for United. Herrera could see himself falling down in the pecking order in England. The Spanish midfielder could be looking forward to a move if any similar interest arises in the summer.
