Herrera agrees PSG deal as United target Rice and Saul

Manchester United’s Ander Herrera has agreed a deal to move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to The Times.

The 29-year-old’s contract with United expires on June 30th, and though he said several times that the door remain open for him to sign an extension, it seems his mind is made up. The Ligue 1 champions have made him an offer of a three-year deal during which he would be earning around £200,000, more than double his current salary of £80,000.

Since joining United in 2014 for just under £30 million,  Herrera has played 187 games in their shirt and scored 20 goals. He was keen on extending his Old Trafford stint, but his representatives failed to reach and agreement with United. The club respect the Spaniard and value everything he has done for them, winning even the 2017 Player of the Year award, but have refused to give a player soon to turn 30 a long and lucrative contract.

They did, however, make him another offer recently, but his agreement with PSG had already been struck. Since then, the 20-time English champions have turned their attention to signing Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid, as well as West Ham’s Declan Rice.
