Manchester United are set to lose midfielder Ander Herrera to PSG, but Arsenal are readying a late swoop for the Spaniard, reports claim.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, having signed a deal as permanent manager for the next three seasons, apparently wants the £29million signing to stay.
The midfielder has been deliberating his future at Old Trafford and recent reports suggested that he has been ‘left unimpressed by United’s offer of a new long-term deal’ and has agreed to join PSG.
Herrera was understood to be holding out for around £150,000-a-week to stay at United, but it was claimed that there is a ‘significant gap’ between the deal United were offering the player and what he was demanding.
A report from the BBC on Thursday claimed that the Spaniard is indeed ready to swap Manchester for Paris, barring a late intervention.
However, French outlet L’Equipe claims that United’s top-four rivals Arsenal will make a late bid to try and convince Herrera to stay in the Premier League.
The Gunners are preparing a last ditch attempt to put together a package that will tempt the former Athletic Bilbao star to snub France for a stay in England.
Their report also states though that United have not ruled out Herrera staying for another season or two, with the player himself having already admitted he will listen to any offers from the Old Trafford club.
