Arsenal to move for Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera

Arsenal could attempt to trump Paris Saint-Germain in their attempts to sign Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera, says L’Equipe.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at Old Trafford this summer, meaning that he has been free to discuss terms with other clubs since January.

A report on BBC Sport claimed that the midfielder has already decided to end his five-year stay in Manchester to join the Parisians on a free transfer.

A report last month in Diario AS claimed the Spaniard will move to the Parc des Princes on a three-year contract, with a ‘significant wage increase’ from a reported €112k per week up to €170k per week.

“Right now I’m only thinking about football and beating Barcelona in the Champions League,” Herrera told Spanish outlet ABC earlier this week.

“I have two months left on my contract while at the moment me and United do not think the same on the renewal terms.

“I want to continue playing at the top level and for a big club for as long as my body allows, and it is still my obligation to listen to what United have to say.

“I do not want to rule out any options at the moment.”

Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club Bilbao have both previously been linked to the combative central midfielder, alongside Italian side Roma.

Herrera joined United in 2014 in a €30m deal and has made 187 appearances to date for the club, scoring 20 goals.
