Arsenal and PSG make contact with agents of Man Utd midfielder Herrera

Manchester United star Ander Herrera

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera could be on his way out of Old Trafford with the both parties failing to reach an agreement which started 18 months ago, according to the Daily Mail

United are still hopeful of persuading him to sign a new deal and it’s believed the 29-year-old midfielder would prefer to stay.

It is understood the Spaniard is looking for a significant increase on his current £80,000-a-week deal to closer to £150,000 having re-established himself as a regular starter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Arsenal will lock horns with Paris Saint Germain who have registered their interest in signing the former Athletic Bilbao man.

Both clubs can offer him more favourable terms because there would be no transfer fee involved.

‘I do not concern myself with what will happen in four months, so I do not know if my time here is over,’ said Herrera in response to speculation over his future.

‘It’s logical when you’ve got three months left on your contact and there is an international break. I knew something would come out.

‘I take it as normal. I focus on playing football in the month-and-a-half that remains (of the season). The rest is left to my agent, both the possible renewal with United and any talks with another club for my departure.

‘I enjoy playing for the biggest club in England. The fans love me, they have treated me phenomenally and my duty is to listen to them – although I honestly do not know what is going to happen.

‘What I see myself is trying to win at Watford next week. If you deserve rewards and if you are an honest and hard-working person, they arrive.’ 

Our Opinion

Hererra can be seen as a direct replacement for Aaron Ramsey who leaves at the end of the summer to Juventus on a free transfer.
