According to Spanish publication El Correo, Ander Herrera of Athletic Bilbao has expressed his desire to join Manchester United after reports of a €25 million bid was supposedly turned down.
Herrera's contract is set to expire in 2016 with three more years still to be played, however he has a release clause of €36 million which Manchester United are now prepared to match.
It's been well documented throughout this summer that Manchester United have been looking to bring in a star midfield player with failed attempts on Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Marouane Felliani and Daniele De Rossi.
Herrera may be the answer to the Red Devils' midfield woes after building up a good reputation in Spain.
He was first noticed in United's failed Europa League campaign back in 2012 where Athletic Bilbao demolished the Red Devils over the two legs.
Could Herrera be the next star to move onto the big stage? And will he be a good investment for Moyes' new side?
