According to recent reports from The Express, Italian giants AC Milan are currently monitoring Manchester United starlet Ander Herrera and are looking to bring in the Spaniard in order to add some depth to their already talented midfield.
Herrera, who joined United back in 2014 from Athletic Bilbao for £28 million, has made a total of 151 appearances for The Red Devils so far during his four-year tenure with the club. Over the course of these past four years, Herrera has also scored a total of 16 goals for Manchester United and has also proved his worth from the central midfield area. Herrera was initially used as the club’s midfield enforcer by manager Jose Mourinho, following the arrival of the Portuguese manager to the club back in 2016.
However, in the past few months, Herrera has fallen down the ranks in United’s midfield after the summer signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea FC. The Spaniard has also seen his first team opportunities start to diminish following Matic’s arrival to Old Trafford. However, Jose Mourinho is currently reluctant to drop either Nemanja Matic or Paul Pogba to the substitute bench in order to assign Herrera to United first team XI and as per reports, the Portuguese manager also has no such interest in selling Herrera anytime soon.
Meanwhile, AC Milan on the other hand, have spent a total of 150 million last summer, however, The Rossoneri are willing to spend some more cash when the transfer window reopens in July once again and Ander Herrera is currently at the top of their wish list, as they are looking to provide some competition to the likes of Lucas Biglia and Riccardo Montolivo.
Personally, Ander Herrera might consider switching to AC Milan in order to feature in the first team on a much regular basis and Milan are currently willing to offer a total of £32 million.
