Ander Herrera Agrees Terms With PSG Despite Athletic Bilbao Offer

Ander Herrera Agrees Terms With PSG Despite Athletic Bilbao Offer

Ander Herrera will move to PSG once he finalises details of the length of the deal despite his former club Athletic Bilbao making a late move for the Manchester United midfielder.

In the summer of 2013 Ander Herrera nearly became the first signing at Manchester United in the David Moyes era but a weird ordeal with solicitors claiming they were working on behalf of the club saw the deal collapse.

However the Spaniard did move a year later to Old Trafford when Louis van Gaal was in charge and even though it took him a while to become a first team regular the midfielder has become a bit of a fan favourite at United.

The 29 year old's heart, determination, passion for the team and general shithousery has made fans like his work even if he's not always the best player on the pitch.

However the midfielder's contract is coming to an end in the summer and there has long been rumours about him ditching Manchester for Paris and signing for PSG.

Now French outlet RMC are reporting that the deal is all but done and he only needs to agree the length of the deal, despite a last ditch attempt from Bilbao to sign him back.

The report goes on to say that the deal will either be four or five years long and that's the only detail to be ironed out but it's not a sticking point as there's 'no doubt' he will be a PSG player next season.

Thomas Tuchel wanted to sign two midfielders in January and only signed one, in the form of Leandro Paredes, and with Adrien Rabiot leaving in the summer for free there's extra need for reinforcements for the Ligue 1 winners.

Napoli's Allan is expected to be the second central midfield signing of the summer for the Parisians.

For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer it confirms an issue with a lack of midfielders. United already need strengthening in the position and the loss of Herrera, plus Juan Mata also likely to leave for free, leaves a big gap.

Scott McTominay has improved under the new manager but questions continue about Fred and Nemanja Matic's quality whilst rumours abound that Paul Pogba could leave.

Who should United sign to replace Herrera?
