Manchester United could renew interest in Athletic Bilbao star

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are considering a renewed bid for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, David Moyes will revisit scouting reports on the 24-year-old before making a decision on whether or not to go back in for him when the transfer window reopens in June.

Herrera was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer, but the Red Devils were reluctant to meet his £32million buy-out clause.

That clause is set to rise again by a further £5million on July 1, meaning Manchester United must move quickly if they are set on acquiring the Spaniard ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

Moyes is being linked with a number of high-profile additions this summer, as he begins a significant overhaul of Manchester United's first-team squad, following a disappointing debut season at the club.

The former Everton boss succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson last summer, but has proved unsuccessful in the club's attempts to defend their Premier League title, whilst also relinquishing a place amongst the top four and with it qualification for the Champions League.

Without entry into Europe's elite club competition it's not yet clear whether Manchester United will struggle to recruit world-class players, particularly with regards to Herrera, with Athletic currently occupying fourth spot in La Liga.
