La Liga side Athletic Bilbao are reportedly looking into the possibility of re-signing Ander Herrera when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
The Spain international was brought to Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2015 but he experienced his best season under Jose Mourinho last term where he was named the club’s Player of the Year.
Herrera has since been in-and-out of the lineup owing to injuries as well as competition from Nemanja Matic and he has yet to resolve his contract which is due to expire in June 2019.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Bilbao are prepared to approach United for the services of Herrera and it is suggested that the Basque player may be tempted by the ‘attractive offer’.
Herrera has been linked with a return to Spain on numerous occasions in the past but based on his recent performances, he has prove a quality player for United for years to come.
Nevertheless, United need to resolve his future within the next couple of months or they may have to sanction his sale on the cheap – rather than losing him on a free next year.
Herrera has been a regular in Jose Mourinho’s 4-3-3 setup of late but he could be benched for the Arsenal game this weekend, should the Portuguese resort for a more attack-minded lineup.
