Ander Herrera is set to join Paris Saint-Germain from Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the season after reportedly agreeing to a three-year contract with the Ligue 1 champions.
Rumours had begun to circulate in recent weeks after the Spaniard had failed to reach and agreement with United about a new deal at the club, prompting discussions to take place with other potential suitors about a summer exit from Old Trafford with Unai Emery’s Arsenal side believed to be one of his suitors.
However, the Gunners looks to have been handed a blow in the race to sign the Spaniard, with The Times journalist Paul Hirst stating that Herrera has agreed personal terms on a contract running through to 2022 with PSG, bringing an end to the 29-year-old’s five-year stay in Manchester.
Having earned in the region of £80k per week with the Red Devils, Herrera will now more than double his current earnings, raking in around £200k per week. It’s a move which doesn’t come as much of surprise following the Spaniard’s cryptic update regarding his future on Tuesday, however.
Since joining the Premier League for £29m in 2104 from hometown club Athletic Bilbao, the midfielder has gone on to make 187 appearances for the club, netting 20 times, winning three major honours during his time at Old Trafford.
The Spaniard played the full 90 minutes as United lifted the Europa League trophy in 2017, while also scooping up the Carabao Cup that season and the FA Cup the year before.
